The Mexican government recently teamed up with Germen Crew?a youth organization and group of street artists?to revitalize Palmitas, a village in Mexico’s Pachuca district, through art.

The idea was to bring the community together by painting the exteriors of more than 200 homes, comprising a surface area of more than 20,000 square meters. Local youths pitched in to help and the project has been hailed a huge success for not only beautifying the area, but leading to a decrease in crime and violence in the neighborhood.
