Mural Project in La Mantanza - Fun, Art & Action!

Conviven will soon be opening a new Centre in La Mantanza. Conviven will be working closely with Patricias Argentinas who are an established organisation in the community.

In January 2011, Conviven & Patricias Argentinas worked together to create a beautiful mural at Patricias Argentinas Centre in La Mantanza.

who attend the Centre
drawing out designs for the mural. The kids had really great, colourful ideas.

Day 2

It was great to see everyone working together & having fun.

Day 3

(34 degrees) but we still had lots of

We added a few more features to the murals and mustered all our artistic ability to make the mural as beautiful as possible. Here is the end result so you can judge for yourself………
