Lisbon Street & Urban Creativity


Inizia a Lisbona giovedi prossimo la Lisbon Street & Urban Creativity Conference, da molti definita come il più importante convegno internazionale mai organizzato per parlare di Graffiti e di Street Art (qui il link dell'evento facebook). Oltre 50 interventi di specialisti del settore che arriveranno da tutto il mondo animeranno una tre giorni in cui il tema della creatività urbana sarà analizzato in tutte le sue forme. 

Le Grand Jeu sarà rappresentato da Christian Omodeo, uno dei nostri fondatori, che presenterà gli esiti delle nostre ricerche sulla repressione dei Graffiti in Europa dagli anni '80 fino ai nostri giorni. Dopo aver analizzato la situazione italiana lo scorso anno nell'ambito di Frontier - la linea dello stile, questa volta al centro delle nostre attenzioni sono finite la Francia e le sue implacabili politiche antigraffiti.

Per chi fosse interessato, pubblichiamo l'intero programma del convegno.
