FMPF is a free artistic platform for anyone who wants to share their voice, experiences, and memories to the rest of their city through individualized street art portraits that we create. Our goal is to celebrate and promote the stories and people that make up the city of Buenos Aires.
We believe that by understanding and being committed to each resident's story or voice, we can create a bridge between individuals throughout the city, and strengthen communities by everyone getting to know each others view or experiences in life.
The residents find our portraits in the city and they write to us through our social media to participate. We ask for a photo of them and we send them a questionnaire that allows us to know them better. In that questionnaire, we ask, for example, what they are proud of, what difficult situations theywent through and how they overcame them, what dreams they have, how their identity was formed. All these questions help us to build the portraits with the indicated character of each person. In this way we believe that the voice of the community is externalized, showing its cultural differences.
Each person has something to contribute for the rest of the city as a collective to learn and grow from in a positive way. We hope to expand our project to the point of being able to create an online network that will allow people to connect and give back to each other not only in Buenos Aires, but worldwide.
We are inspired by diversity and the ability to transmit messages that can help us live better together. We believe that by knowing and empathizing with the history of the other, we can contribute to reduce the prejudices between us.
