And within that, we have a new project 'wide open walls', which is a community-based street art project. So for the last three years I've been bringing artists from all over the world to paint in the local communities. We paint on people's houses and the plan is to hopefully start bringing tourists into the area where they will pay to come in and see the art on the walls. And that would be a direct income for the local
