The programme, which was established in 2003, seeks to bring together teenagers from diverse backgrounds, and enable them to create artwork that has a significant meaning for them. ‘Teen ArtXpress’ is an annual programme which invites those aged between 16-18 to create murals to be illustrated on bus stops or county buses.

Each year participating teens are encouraged to look at national issues effecting the country; this year immigration was chosen. The bus with the mural will be operating on routes across the city for a month.
