Bronx Community Solutions (BCS) will be parterning with NYPD’s 41st Precinct in a new and exciting community event, a mural painting community service project called “A.C.T”, Artists Coming Together. This project will bring graffiti writers, including TATS CRU “the mural kings’, BT Crew and DYM Crew, together to create beautiful murals promoting community empowerment in an area that has been plagued by graffiti and other crimes.
Project A.C.T. is a new component of our Graffiti Removal Initiative. Many of our communities have been saturated with graffiti. In response, BCS community service crews have painted over many sites. These sites are then maintained by community residents and business owners. To advance our Graffiti Removal Initiative, we intend to create four (4) murals that promote cultural and community unity in the Hunts Point neighborhood. In partnership with community members, we will maintain the murals after they have been painted. This initiative will provide a unique opportunity to establish a permanent symbol of the Hunts Point community’s commitment to improvement and a better quality of life for all residents, businesses and visitors.
