Ricardo Maluf explains the feedback from "B.O. Coletivo," a collective project based on the community input of incident reports. For example, users can point out where they got robbed on a city map and alert other users of recurring crimes in the area.

Empowering Street Artists, Activating Citizens

BY MARIO RUEDA
@ PECHAKUCHA URBAN INNOVATION MONTH ON APR 01, 2014

Many think of vandalism and graffiti when they hear the words "street art", but people like Mario Rueda 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. 

"Presentation of the Day" on June 20, 2014.
