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.

BY ANNAL VYAS
@ VOL 9 ON NOV 03, 2017

At 40, something I realized that a series of brief "diversity immersion experiences" defined not only what I do but who I am. Encounters since childhood that have been centered around self-awareness, difference, bias, value and mindset determine the narrative we create surrounding every aspect of our life. I share my journey and expound on how it led me to my current career. My name is Lisa and I AM A DIVERSITY TRAINER.
