A project devised by an Indonesian ad agency to educate street kids in Jakarta using graffiti could be turned into a documentary.

Y&R Indonesia is in talks with counter-culture publisher Vice.com about making a short documentary about the Graffiteach Wall Project, which teaches homeless kids traditional subjects using street art.

The project, which has been covered by Indonesia’s The Jakarta Globe and the ABC in Ausralia, was devised by Y&R Indonesia’s ECD Kevin Le and the CD of The Campaign Palace Jakarta – Y&R’s sister agency – Ronny Pratama.

The group has a presence on Facebook and Twitter, and images of the educational murals are to be made into a book.

Palace creatives have also signed up to be Graffiteachers, but the agency told Mumbrella it had no plans to involve any of its clients in the project.
