Beyond Walls is a non-profit placemaking agency that uses a creative lens to address community needs.
We are a diverse group that believes cities best thrive when they are full of art and have engaged stakeholders and active spaces. Our work revolves around our mission to activate spaces to strengthen communities.
How do we do this?
We introduce public art and curated experiences into the fabric of our communities by partnering with local organizations, municipalities, community members and experts to design, produce and manage projects and programs. Whether it be a Street Art Festival or artistic lighting projects, these activities are executed to enhance the physical landscape, drive positive economic change and bolster community engagement.
We believe that:
all communities deserve safe, vibrant, and active spaces
partnerships and a collaborative community engagement approach produce impactful projects
thriving public spaces help create stronger neighborhoods and increase the sense of place in our cities
art-filled, well lit, walkable urban environments help promote economic and lifestyle vitality
“In a word…unstoppable.”
