Dubai: To Kill A Stock-Cap
Dubai’s public has recently decided to have a dedicated wall for students to paint murals opposed to spray painting on public property. The name of this project is “Clean Walls…Beautiful City” and is taking place at Zayed Bin Sultan School in Satwa, Hamda Al Murr. The purpose of this is to change the youth’s opinion on defacing property and to choose to do it respectfully instead. By September, they also plan to choose a second legal wall. This anti-graffiti project will target around 20 public and private schools in the area with children from the age of eight to 18 years old. With free paint being given away for the said legal walls, they are hoping that children will choose to paint over the graffiti to emulate how business owners feel when their property is defaced… We don’t see how this is going to work but it makes sense to their council somehow. With hopes to create more “responsible” adults in the future, Dubai will just have to find out for themselves what happens.
