Uplifting and Inspirational Murals in Dangriga and Belize City

Carl Ramos in DangrigaIn 2013, ComeUNITY Works was created to unite international and local artists in order to inspire and address challenges that are plaguing and stagnating underprivileged communities, and to uplift and advance the masses.

For the second consecutive year, in collaboration with FariStudios (www.facebook.com/faristudios) and Croz (www.facebook.com/Crosbyjackart), ComeUNITY Works connected with local partners to complete a series of uplifting and inspirational murals in Dangriga & Belize City over the Easter Holiday.

In two weeks time, ComeUNITY Works, in collaboration with FariStudios and Croz, installed public art on the walls of Carl Ramos Stadium entitled, “Why-Not Basketball Bleachers and Benguche Basketball Courts in Dangriga Belize.”
“We chose these walls because they are areas where people come together in unity in Dangriga, a community that is rich with roots and culture but scarce in resources and opportunity. After the mural installations in Dangriga we traveled to Belize City to beautify Stella Maris Deaf School, a school often forgotten in Belize. Stella Maris appreciates the diversity of all learners and we were overjoyed to bring upliftment to the deserving youth at this special school. Many issues are plaguing the youth of Belize and it is our hope to encourage and inspire positive movements over negative actions by uplifting the masses through Creativity! Many thanks to all our partners that helped make these works come to life! Seremei!” (Hannah Huntley, Founder of ComeUNITY Works)

Come! Join us in UNITY! It works!

    In fairness to the media houses, they each had access to the footage of the mural project – but it pales in comparison to the outrageous occurrences at home. I hasten to say though, that this story was a positive and uplifting story which our society could use. But you know our people, we have a fever for the flavor of salacious and the sensational and grotesque.

    First time i went to Griga i could not believe my heart cried. It felt like home. Ever since then i have been going to Belize and all up and down Stan creek.. Seen so much beauty and made memorable friends. I plan to retire in Bz. I do love the ocean. It reminded me very much of Bluefields, Nicaragua only more colorful all around. How can be help?
