“When I moved to Canada in 2016, I was mesmerized by beautiful murals all around the city. I was very excited to see all the murals because I always wanted to do bigger scale work. Then I found Mural Routes’ Mural Art Career Development (MACD) Program while I was searching for an opportunity. And it changed my life entirely.” – Jieun June Kim
