On Monday, April 26, students at Kurt Hahn, a NYC Outward Bound School in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, unveiled a colorful community mural outside of the building that depicts themes of equality, inclusivity and safety in the community. This project is one of several leading up to Kurt Hahn’s celebration of Better World Day on May 7, an annual day of community service and socially-conscious volunteer work that benefits the local community, run by NYC Outward Bound Schools’ national partner, EL Education.
Lead artist Danielle Mastrion worked closely with a team of Kurt Hahn students to design and create this piece of public art over the past two weeks. This mural represents the Brooklyn portion of a five-borough Inclusive Safety Mural Series, a project developed by nonprofit genEquality.
Kudos to the Kurt Hahn students who worked so hard on creating this beautiful piece — Michaiah Noel, Jayda-Marie McCarthy, Jashar Baptiste, Zebulun Stewart, Akeil Martinez, Kalema Gooding and Jayvon Richards.
