Mission Statement

To foster the self-expression of marginalized youth by engaging them in constant creativity and collaboration, harnessing their energy and elevating their self-esteem towards higher education and the sport of creative competition.

Description

Off The Wall Graffiti sees that talent is over looked when the creation of it often destructs property. We see this as a cry for self-expression, acknowledgement and acceptance. We believe we will change their lives by giving the students an opportunity to create on sanctioned areas, have their community support them with competitions and cause others to relate to them as contributing participants in art. We strive to reach all levels of student - those who are afflicted by conflict, violence, social barriers and poverty as well as those whose talent is nurtured because we know that talent rises when urged along with a little healthy competition.

We believe that acknowledging them, mentoring them and providing a community for them will ultimately open their lives to a new future, one that they did not see for themselves prior. Our three pronged approach to competition; mentoring and scholarship will elevate the student experience much like sports have. These students will feel confident to leave their mark on society, not on private property, when they engage fully with Off The Wall Graffiti.

By affecting artists doing graffiti along with the culture shift about graffiti and street art which is in an undeniable groundswell, globally we will leave a legacy of a unified body of artists who indeed change lives.
