Empowering Street Artists, Activating Citizens

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

"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.

@ VOL 127 ON JUL 29, 2015

"Nowadays we have new tech. Everybody has an iPhone and actually these are more powerful than any of the satellites now in space. And thats the idea. We are basically using them to produce space stuff that is way more powerful and much less expensive."

He then turns our imaginations to the future, proposing a new age of space exploration where the playing field has been levelled, the barrier of entry lowered, an exciting new era of new inexpensive tech in space, which we can all potentially participate, and for the benefit of all.
