Explore 41 Fleet Street with me

I was extremely delighted when I decided 41 Fleet Street would be my next destination. This location is known for being violent. But you know me, I can't bail on the opportunity that will educate, stimulate and motivate my mind, body and soul. I was informed about how amazing it was. So, I started my research and it drove my desire to want more.

When I arrived, I was greeted with houses coated with the most luminous paintings.

1. 41 Fleet Street is located in Parade Gardens Downtown Kingston.

3. A collective of foreigners and local artists were created. They communicated with individuals from the community to find out the visions and wishes they had for Parade Gardens.

5. I took a moment to assess the surrounding  and to capture it all in. It was just stunning. All the paintings explain a narrative. The paintings seem to demonstrate  the wishes, expectations and background of members of the community.
