Painting a New World / Peindre un Nouveau Monde
(PNMW) is a non profit organization founded in Montreal in 2008
by artists Agnes Jorgensen and Andre Chatelain.
The organization focuses mainly on supporting artists
in Africa and Haiti through a mural art program.
The murals must be appropriate to the context of the community
and present a socially conscious message. Murals are painted on
school walls and/or community centers by local artists.
The aim of the artwork is to create positive change
by employing local artists and educating a community about their
environment and future.
The mural project is funded by the founders of PNMW,
Agnes and Andre, through the sales of their original artworks.
