The youth service of Maasmechelen started this project as a result of a survey that that youth council had conducted with the youth of Maasmechel. From this survey, the question often came back to a graffiti workshop.
The cupboards are largely painted by residents of Maasmechelen with an interest in art. Treepack prepared the participants of the project by giving a workshop. Here the participants learned the different techniques such as handling and templates. Another part of the cabinets are painted by professional artists including 2Dirty and Vexx. In February, residents of Maasmechelen were invited to think along with them about the location of the cupboards during a consultation moment. In the end they opted for the center of Maasmechelen. They can all be viewed within a walking route of approximately 5.5 km.
The official inauguration of the project is on April 6. Visitors receive information about the various works of art, a street plan with the locations of the cupboards and can enjoy a snack, a drink and pleasant music.
