Mural replacement programme
We made £25,000 available to help communities replace murals in their local area that could be seen as causing offence to the wider community.
Community groups applied for funding up to a maximum of £5,000 to remove, replace or transform existing murals.
The funding was used for projects that could:
- remove, replace or transform an existing mural that is seen as aggressive in content,
- involve the wider community in the project,
- engage residents on local related issues,
- support engagement activities on issues of physical separation,
- link to T:BUC (Together: Building a United Community Strategy) priorities of improving attitudes among children and young people, creating safe and shared communities, promoting positive cultural expression and promoting good relations within communities,
- show value for money, and
- develop a positive image that links to a significant centenary event, topic or other subject of relevance to the local community.
