Mural, mural, on the wall, I’m at home after all

"Mural, mural, on the wall, I'm at home after all" is a visual story of women from Iraq, Yemen, Syria, Afghanistan, and Palestine, that took the form of a contemporary mural. This mutual story is related to their past and present and states their intention for a better future in Bulgaria.

 

Period: 1.04.-6.04.2019
Location: "Women's Market", 5, Lozengrad Street

 

Inspired by women who have received asylum in Bulgaria, the art intervention is created by TOCHKA SPOT.
The art project was developed after several workshop meetings in which each of the women brought a personal object that is related emotionally to their homes. At the same time, they were drawing and contributing with ideas on what to include in the mural and what is typical for their homelands. Thus, through the prism of her characteristic style, TOCHKA SPOT depicted specific elements of the shared stories, through which she communicated in the mural the message of all women - that they have arrived in Bulgaria to build and create a better and more beautiful place to live by adding value from their own experience in life and magnificent culture. The women proved it, as on the first day of the art intervention they personally took part in placing the background colors. Having fun, they all helped create the art project and change the vision of the chosen wall near the emblematic neighborhood of the Women's Market.

The project is being implemented on the invitation of the Meeting Points Foundation with the support of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR Bulgaria) and Caritas Sofia.
