Liberia has a rich artistic tradition that is often overlooked by outsiders and Liberians alike. Leslie is a talented artist who is passionate about training young people to use art for social change. He has set up an accountability art movement–using art schools, murals and exhibitions to engage people around accountability issues and allow people to express themselves through their creativity.
“LIVArts has really grown with the Accountability Lab’s support- now we are engaging citizens in all sorts of ways to understand their rights and responsibilities using art- through interactive murals, art shows and schools, and special events. This creative process and the conversations it generates are key to the future of Liberia”. – Leslie
