FAVELA PAINTING AZC WENCKEBACHWEG Last August, the first residents moved in the huge complex at Wenckebachweg, a former prison with six giant grey towers that have long be an eyesore in Amsterdam’s skyline. The whole complex has been refurbished and luckily, Favela Painting - famous for their community art projects in Rio de Janeiro, Philadelphia and Haiti among others - transformed the in- and outside of the buildings together with a group of local residents and volunteers. The project aims to offer opportunities in form of skill training, network building, and job opportunity while empowering the participants to make the place their own.
