"Couleur Quartier" Elementary school Pee and Nel mural by Julieta XLF

Couleur Quartier is a project that will be realised during the Easter holidays of 2020. Primary school Pee & Nel, the city of Leuven, Treepack, Scholengroep11 and many other helping hands will support the creation of a mural by Spanish artist Julieta.

The project rests on three main pillars.

1. Diversity
In this suburb of Leuven, many people from different backgrounds live together. Many of those children go to this primary school. We want to show this perfect mix of people in a good light, by including characters from all over the world in the mural. At the same time, we create a good example for the children, by showing that harmony between people in society is certainly possible.

2. Nature
The artist Julieta often works with whimsical figures, but often adds flora and fauna elements. The children here live in a very concrete environment and often do not have the chance to 'be' in nature. By incorporating nature-like elements in the mural, they can enjoy just that little bit extra of what Mother Earth has to offer.

3. Mobility
At present, and certainly in the past, many drivers of motorised vehicles drive at high speed through this street. Additional bicycle lanes have been constructed on the road and speed bumps have been installed. Unfortunately, without much success. This mural will certainly attract attention - not only because of its size, but also because of the bright colours, and hopefully also of the speeders!

And what's more, we simply want to offer the residents, pupils and visitors of this district and school a pleasant environment.

Our artist - Julieta - is currently working on this design.

"Stand up for your neighbourhood".

This project is (largely) sponsored by a project called "Stand up for your neighbourhood". It was started by the city and has been a real success story so far!
The concept is as follows: your neighbourhood is in need of something new. Residents who have an idea are encouraged to make a dossier explaining the concept. This can range from murals to painting electricity cabinets, placing plants on the façade or even mini wall libraries where local residents can exchange books. Endless possibilities!
Once the dossier is sent in and approved, a sum of money goes to the coordinating party (often the residents) to carry out the planned ideas. Residents may hire external contractors, such as Treepack, to realise their wishes. Et voila, another glorious mural!
