In an effort to create a safer and more welcoming entrance point to our neighborhood, our community proposes substantial improvements to the Guilford Avenue bridge. These improvements include benches, lighting and murals.

Artists do not need to have created murals in the past to apply, but having a history of or knowledge of outdoor and large scale work is helpful. This will be a ground level mural project, thus, all ages and community groups are strongly encouraged to apply

A program that builds on your unique strengths.

The Bunting Neighborhood Leadership Program (BNLP) is a one-of-a-kind initiative led by the Johns Hopkins Urban Health Institute.  We recognize that Baltimore neighborhoods have a wealth of community members with passion, leadership, and vision who know their communities best – and are therefore well positioned to address community problems.  However, there are limited resources available at the neighborhood level for leadership training. To address this issue and support emerging leaders, the BNLP will cultivate and train neighborhood-level and community-based leaders to build with them the knowledge, skills, and mentorship to improve neighborhood health outcomes.
