Adding Color To Lives

The Park Inn by Radisson hotels are Adding Color to Lives by working with local youth at risk. You will find many Park Inn by Radisson hotels located in city-center top locations. A lot of these locations have underprivileged youth with a series of issues.

The connection with our colorful Park Inn brand and ‘Adding Color to Lives’ is easily made. Under the program, Park Inn by Radisson hotels will build a long term relationship with local youth at risk groups, focus on developing work and personal skills and on organizing joint community projects.

The initiative was launched in September 2015. In five flagship locations, Park Inn by Radisson hotels organized workshops for local youth at risk together with Joel Bergner, a famous mural artist on a social mission. In each location a colorful mural with a created by the youth at risk and volunteers of the hotels. The project generated a unique collaboration.
 
Street art or mural art is basically taking art out of the museum, and putting it somewhere in public where everybody can enjoy it. That is a way for the youth in difficult life situations to be able to express themselves and give them a voice.
 
After the tremendous success of the first Adding Color to Lives campaign last year, the partnership with Joel Bergner continued in 2016 to bring positivity to young people.  Park Inn by Radisson reinforces its commitment to support childhood, local communities and helps improve the lives of disadvantaged children across the world. Starting in Oslo, Norway, followed by Tallinn, Estonia, Krakow in Poland and finishing the journey in Johannesburg, South Africa.
