Brighten Up Communities in Hungary

Use your creative skills to brighten up the walls of a hospital or school

About this project

There are many social institutions in Hungary whose buildings are in quite poor condition.

You can help one of the  hospitals or schools with a creative painting initiative to bring joy and inspiration to the attendees.

You will paint mural cartoons or fairy tale heroes to decorate the walls of one of these buildings.
