Rio de Janeiro
This summer, the art duo Jeroen Koolhaas & Dre Urhahn has painted a striking rainbow out of 33 buildings in the deepest slum of Rio de Janeiro (O Morro means "The Hill", synonymous with "Slum" according to N.Y. Times).
A wonderful grassroots movement about remaking an unknown place into a monumental space, helped out by the youngsters that live there and by grants and donations.

These sort of communal projects, might be of the most uplifting and positive aspects of what we can create out of our surroundings and for the people that needs it the most.
