Community BUILDs: Public Mural in Brookline

Are you a BIPOC youth with a connection to Brookline with artistic talent and/or interest in the binary racism vs mental health and would like to participate in workshops and the installation of a public mural at the Brookline Teen Center this Summer? This is your chance to express yourself! Submit your application by May 31st, 2022.  


The Brookline Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Community Relations (ODICR), in collaboration with the Brookline Arts Center, the Brookline Center, the Brookline Teen Center and Steps to Success, are launching Community BUILDs, a pilot social action that tackles the impact of racism in youth mental health. The social action involves a set of workshop sessions with the BIPOC youth, the BIPOC artist and a clinician, for the co-creation, co-development and co-installation of a public mural at the Brookline Teen Center. The action will culminate in an outcome celebration day in July with the participants, their families and partners involved. 

If you would like to get involved and apply, please submit your questions and application with a statement of interest and reason, your affiliation to Brookline, your contact and samples of work to by May 31st, 2022. You can also contact Carolina San Miguel at (617) 730-2640. 

For reasonable accommodations and language access, please contact Sarah Kaplan at or 617-730-2329. 

Further, if you are a local teacher and/or community leader and would like to host a Q&A session with BIPOC youth in May about Community BUILDs, please reach out to Carolina.  

Community BUILDs is being supported by the Town of Brookline and Brookline Community Foundation, through the Racial Equity Advancement Fund.
