Mural Curriculum

The Multicultural Mural is a cultural education and outreach project of the Moab Valley Multicultural Center (MVMC). It is the result of a collaborative community project designed to create an outdoor diversity classroom for people of all ages, languages and abilities.

The Multicultural Mural website is a cultural education tool intended to provide fun and challenging learning activities for youth grades 6-12 with an emphasis on LEADERSHIP and ADVOCACY. Using diverse social justice leaders as examples, we hope to empower local youth to address challenges in their own communities.
