Messages in a mural are delivered through the processing of visual elements embedded with symbols, signs, codes, and meanings. The messages delivered in the mural comprise both verbal and visual. The existence of murals created the concept of social space which includes important issues such as the theme of disaster. When the mural is associated with disaster mitigation efforts, the mural is expected to bring a great influence on the awareness of citizens. The mural is also expected as a monument that can urge citizens to stay alert to potential disasters. The research methodology is a descriptive-explanative method with a qualitative approach. This research aims to analyze and explain the causal relationships in the production of social space through a mural with the theme of disaster.

Mural in the middle of the city is a representation of space because the discourse used in producing social space is a social problem that exists around the mural space was created so that the meaning contained in the mural is able to represent.
