Lisbon SAUC 2017


As every year, the Street Art & Urban Creativity network, based in Lisbon, is organizing an international conference in Portugal from July 6 to 8, inviting some of the most inspiring reasearchers, thinkers and organizers dealing with graffiti & street art from all over the world. This year programme, which could still be modified, seems particularly interesting.
