Add more beauty to open spaces!

Project Description

By creating several murals on the walls of Kathmandu we would like to inspire, animate and add different voices and stories to the open space in Kathmandu. Kathmandu is turning into a true melting pot, hosting a number of migrants from all over the country. By dedicating each mural to a district, we want to bring fresh elements of different part of the country to the capital. We aim to foster collaboration among artists, community, and splash colors of artistic expression, and reflection in the streets. We work with a carefully selected team of local and international artists of diverse backgrounds who are connected to Kathmandu as a creative art space. Additionally Sattya has a history of working with artists from all over the world, and has witnessed creation of outstanding works through collaboration. By allowing diverse pool of artists to interact, inspire, and learn from each other’s work, we endeavor to transfer the creative energy to the walls of the streets. By the end of the project, we plan to create a map of all 75 murals.
