Change the World’s CEO and resident artist Wayne Tindall recently spent two weeks working for the Stride Foundation to assist in delivering a public space mural painting program for young people in Coober Pedy.
Stride Foundation is a non-profit, non-government organisation working across Australia to improve the physical, mental and social wellbeing of young people and their communities. Role model and mentoring programs are delivered in some of the most disadvantaged remote, rural and metropolitan areas across Australia. Sport, Art, Music and Environmental Activities are used to re-engage, build resilience and help young people to fulfill their true potential.
After two weeks of hard work the results speak for themselves. The paintings are the result of a collaborative process between all people involved with a ‘hands on’ approach resulting in pride, a sense of self worth and local ownership of the works of art in the Coober Pedy Basketball Courts.
