Colourful Houses, Part 1

The Mexican government allowed street artists to paint 200 houses. According to reports, the impact has been extremely positive: 452 families, or 1808 people, were affected by this project, resulting in violence amongst youths being entirely eradicated. The street artists group made community involvement a priority, which could partially explain the good results.
