On the 27th of February, Aucklanders will have the opportunity to contribute to a public mural outside of the Central City Library alongside internationally-acclaimed artist Jean-Marc Calvet. A cat with many lives, Jean Marc started out on the streets. His journey was one of addiction, crime and despair until the age of 38 when he overcame his addictions through an extraordinary metamorphosis in which he began to paint.
Now a passionate suicide prevention advocate, Jean Marc will recount his story of redemption as he paints, hoping to leave a mark of hope. Food will be available from the Splice BBQ trailer.
