Edi Rama – Take back your city with paint

Edi Rama – Take back your city with paint

I’m an avid TED viewer. I love so many of the talks. This one however resonated with me in light of the current situation in my home town of Featherston. While we are not a city, we are a town with a poor reputation. We have some run down buildings in need of a lick of paint with graffiti on them. There is even one with a green roof, which used to be red, but the grass has taken over. The Council buildings are in need of a lick of paint too. We have some heritage buildings and we are getting a shiny new supermarket complete with café and post shop. I’ve added this here to encourage people to think about what can be done at a grass roots level. One can of paint at a time.
