Color Me Back: Same Day Work And Pay Program
Mat Tomezsko is the Lead Artist and Studio Manager at the Mural Arts Color Me Back: Same Day Work and Pay Program studio location at 3208 Kensington Avenue.
Color Me Back is an innovative program that combines participatory art-making and access to social services in a unique model offering individuals experiencing economic insecurity an opportunity to earn wages. Participants can connect, contribute, and engage with peer specialists who can link them with support services, including social and/or behavioral health services, and potential opportunities for longer-term employment while working in the program.
Color Me Back was designed in partnership with the Scattergood Foundation, SEPTA, and Mental Health Partnerships. The initiative is managed by Mural Arts’ Porch Light program, a collaboration with the City of Philadelphia’s Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services.
