Young people and street artists are transforming two bland walls at Whittington Link into colourful murals to celebrate National Youth Week.
The murals are part of a community arts project and to improve the look and feel of the area.
Young people are working with renowned street artists to create one mural of the Bellarine Rail Trail and one of a large pattern using tape art.
It's a great opportunity for young people to see their work have a
positive impact on the community.
As part of National Youth Week celebrations, the City is hosting a number of other
events which include live music, skate, scoot and BMX competitions, and free
National Youth Week is about celebrating our young people and the
contribution they make to our community.
National Youth Week runs until Sunday 9 April 2017.

They’re big, bright, full of colour and will transform the walls into vibrant and appealing spaces.
The art work will help create a sense of pride, respect and ownership in the area.
We’re also working on two other murals, one with a renowned street artist, a business and a school in North Geelong and one with young people at the Waurn Ponds skate park."
