The Graffiti Wall lets people come throughout the day to leave a message on and illustrate their ideas for a better world.  These recordings will be compiled to document the thoughts, ideas and questions about the world in 2018. It is a social space that evokes discourse amongst the community and gather their responses to better understand the importance of recorded and documented historical evidence.

It is a participatory workshop and exhibition which lets the reader take the active position of producer giving people agency to become co-creators.
