About the #AddingColorToLives Project

Park Inn by Radisson hotels are Adding Color to Lives by working with local youth at risk. You will find many Park Inn by Radisson hotels located in city-center top locations. A lot of these locations have underprivileged youth with a series of issues.

The connection with our colorful Park Inn by Radisson brand and ‘Adding Color to Lives’ is easily made. Under the program, Park Inn by Radisson hotels will build a long term relationship with local youth at risk groups, focus on developing work and personal skills and on organizing joint community projects.

Mural Painters

The initiative was launched in September 2015. In five flagship locations, Park Inn by Radisson hotels organized workshops for local youth at risk together with Joel Bergner, a famous mural artist on a social mission. In each location a colorful mural with a created by the youth at risk and volunteers of the hotels. The project generated a unique collaboration.
