Mission Description

Build a better PJ by volunteering as a street mural painter

What's Happening?

PJKITA is a community initiative by Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) to engage with citizens through multiple channels (e.g. projects, grants, initiatives), learn about their ideas and aspirations to achieve a sustainable, creative and community-driven city.

To kickstart this journey, PJKITA is building activating a public street (that requires your painting & bricklaying prowess!) leading up to PJ FAIR 2017, a public event to celebrate the diversity of Petaling Jaya and bring PJ-rians together through a series of music, arts and culture programmes. The fair will mark the opening of constructing new community-oriented shop lots, a youth centre and the new MBPJ office in the area.


Who's Eligible?

Open for anyone with no limitations to age & skills, we are looking for volunteers who want to contribute their weekends to for two activities: 1) Painting – learn the basics of street painting and flex your artistic muscles on the public road following guided designs!

What you will need:

  • A heart of service for Petaling Jaya ♥
  • Dedication for 8 hours (9am - 5pm) for a weekend
  • Enjoyment of stirring cement and laying of bricks
  • A resilience against paint possibly staining your clothing!
  • Water to survive

Who's Organising?

EPIC Communities is partnering with MBPJ & DTLMA (the architects in the cover photo) to help mobilise this community effort. This initiative will be held over 5 weekends from 30th September 2017 to 29th October 2017.

We will prepare the following:

  • Basic training for street painting & bricklaying (mornings only)
  • Facilitation by coordinators to paint and lay bricks according to designs
  • Painting & bricklaying tools and materials
  • Food & drinks to energise your communal efforts!

Special thanks to our sponsors involved in this mission!

You can study the street art design in this PDF.

Note that this is only for the first weekend of painting and bricklaying! Consecutive weekends for painting efforts will continue on these dates, with registrations opened before:

Mission Impact

Petaling Jaya would be beautified not by hired contractors but by joint efforts between the local authorities, local architects and local citizens to start shaping a community-centred city from this space. The street mural will serve as a public landmark which leads to the opening of this public space, shoplots and community centre for all PJ-rians inclusive of ethnic background, age, religion and occupation.
