Within the framework of the mAPP my Europe program, a transnational training was held in Kalamata. The transnational trainings “Urban Art for Regional Legacy”’ took place from July 25 to July 26, 2019.
The training was organized by Social Youth Development, K.A.NE. The aim of this training was to let participants to develop a more opened perspective on the Street Art phenomenon, exploring the culture that create it all around the world. A total of 26 participants attended the training.
Art is a language and street art (in the form of graffiti, stancils and many others) it’s a way to communicate too. Street Art is visual art created in public locations, usually unsanctioned artwork executed outside of the context of traditional art venues. This feature brings many argumentative positions on it.
By following the fil rouge of the narrative surrounding the street art world, we’ll melt some knots discovering unexpected points of view.
Participants had the opportunity to be trained in innovative tools and to have a tour around Kalamata during the outdoor activity “Tales of Kalamata”. Finally, the group had the opportunity to attend the Street festival of Kalamata. The Kalamata Street Festival is organised by K.A.NE.
