Results Driven Community Arts Consulting

We at Solel International are proud to have been chosen by several communities to visually tell their stories though visual and multimedia representations.  Our work typically brings people together, create community ownership of its branding, history and collective character. We bring together talented artists, community volunteers, stakeholders and all others that want to see underprivileged areas thrive. 

We assist with comprehensive community art planning, art budgeting , resource managements, community banding and marketing. We leave no stone unturned when consulting great communities.

In 2018, we have an impressive series of first's:  

First Mural in Houston to showcase the history of Independence Heights (first city incorporated by African Americans in Texas)
First Mural in Houston, Texas created and led by a Moorish American on this grand scale
First Mural to have fused augmented reality with fine art
The Mural was painted on the First Whole Foods 365 in Houston, Texas and 2nd in the State of Texas.

Our work has been featured in several publications:

Houston Chronicle

 We've had children's activities on the Mural. This gives the community ownership of the Mural and improves business to community relations reducing most negative impact while producing positive relationships.

COmmunity partnership branding

In 2009 Houston LISC launched the GO Neighborhoods program — a multiyear place-based initiative for revitalizing Houston communities. GO Neighborhoods is a comprehensive community development approach that leverages resources by working across traditionally disconnected sectors including:  housing and real estate; family income and wealth; economic development; quality education; and healthy environments and lifestyle.  LISC defines these as essential features of a sustainable community.

The Branding of Go Neighborhoods was created Danny Asberry El of Solel International and conceptualized by LISC AmeriCorps .
