Three of the “14 Doors” are occupied by work facilitated by Living Walls, the Atlanta-based nonprofit “focused on bringing representation and celebration to different communities,” said their Peru-born executive director, Monica Campana, at the event. In Charlotte, that meant organizing the project “Ladies to the Front,” celebrating and honoring “the women and those women identifying, the sisters, the mothers and the daughters that help build and sustain our community.” Living Walls paired three, female artists working Charlotte with local youth-based organizations on dreaming up and executing their three murals. In addition, a shipping container mural prominently displays the title of this specific project, with a flower emerging through a female hand. Painter Sloane Sioban and members of the West Charlotte-based Here for Good Club conjured this “poaching”-inspired call for young African-American girls to not let the world hold them back. QC Family Tree's Here for Good Club is "cultivating creative and compassionate leaders for the common good at West Charlotte." The after-school club regular meets at West Charlotte High School.
