Graffiti, just like Facebook and Twitter, can act as a powerful driver of change: graffiti can be anonymous, it is seen by all, and reflects constantly evolving messages. Most importantly, graffiti marks the streets with the voices of citizens.
In December 2014, in the context of its 6th Annual Meeting, the CMI organized “Walls of Change, Voices of Youth”, a Mediterranean Graffiti Exhibit, offering a glimpse of the colored and vibrant walls of Mediterranean countries.
The exhibit featured the works of two artists.
Rana Jarbou, a Saudi Arabian blogger and researcher who has been documenting the voices cried through One Thousand and One Walls, in more than 12 Arab countries.
Mahn Kloix, a French artist, in whom these voices resonated, and who decided to pay tribute to the people that made change happen. He did this by drawing and bringing the portraits of the protestors back to the streets where it all happened: Cairo, Tunis, Madrid, Athens, and Oakland.
