AkzoNobel, MasterPeace completes colouring of 100 walls
Let’s Colour Walls of Connection has demonstrated the power of paint brands, such as Dulux, to uplift communities and make living spaces more livable and enjoyable.

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS: AkzoNobel NV and global peace movement MasterPeace have reached the milestone of creating 100 “walls of connection” in more than 30 cities this year. The 100th mural was painted at the AkzoNobel education centre in Badshahpur, Gurgaon, India.

The partnership was announced with the first mural in Rotterdam, the Netherlands in March of this year, and has since revitalized walls in cities around the world including Jakarta, Indonesia; Quito, Ecuador; London, UK; and Karachi, Pakistan.

Let’s Colour Walls of Connection has demonstrated the power of paint brands, such as Dulux, to uplift communities and make living spaces more livable and enjoyable. In fun and surprising ways, these walls have brought communities together in celebrating unity, kindness and connection.

The 100th mural was painted at one location of AkzoNobel’s education project in India. Named ‘parivartan’, meaning ‘change’, the project has transformed the lives of more than 5,000 children by getting them back into school with bridge education and ensuring they continue their education and improve their grades. The Gurgaon location provides education to children from unprivileged backgrounds.

“We believe in the power of togetherness, and by helping bring citizens together to visualize their dreams and talk about them, we hope to bring down some of the walls we have built up in our minds. It is truly fantastic to see the work that has been done by everyone around the world, driving change towards more inclusive and resilient communities. The activities that I witnessed over the past months show that our promise turned into an inspiring reality for many,” said Aart Bos, MasterPeace Global leadership team.

“We are delighted that the culmination of the Walls of Connection project is aptly taking place at AkzoNobel education centre. We firmly believe that education plays a crucial role in breaking down barriers, resulting in an egalitarian and enlightened society. That’s why we focus on providing education to underprivileged children,” added David Teng, general manager, decorative paints, South Asia Cluster, AkzoNobel India.
