PechaKucha Presentation

Empowering Street Artists, Activating Citizens

PRESENTED ON APR 01, 2014
IN LISBON @ PECHAKUCHA URBAN INNOVATION MONTH

"Shouldn't we all pay more attention to the space around us?"

In Empowering Street Artists, Activating Citizens from PechaKucha Urban Innovation Month Lisbon, Mario Rueda presents the importance of street artists within our local communities.

Many think of vandalism and graffiti when they hear the words "street art", but people like Mario see the city in a very different light. Public spaces are taken over by advertisements and corporations, but the artists, performers, and musicians who share their creativity and seek to delight fellow citizens are treated like criminals.

Book a Street Artist is a platform which seeks to empower artists and give back the city to citizens. 

APPLAUD THIS!
