The good the bad and the beautiful
An illegal street piece by Banksy
Can graffiti be managed smarter in Europe? How could we best share knowledge and equipcommunities to design more community-aware andresource-efficient approaches that are really ‘fit forpurpose’ and context? How might responses and actions related to graffitiand graffiti vandalism help to better promote the‘pro-social’ as well mitigate ‘anti-social’? How will we know which communities are actuallyaffected by a particular instance of graffiti andwhich are best served by strident crime preventionapproaches to managing graffiti and street art? Would Graffolution be the solution?
These are some of the points that will be debated in London on the 15 December 2015 at Central Saint Martin, during a meeting hosted by the Design Against Crime Research Centre (DACRC) at UAL, in collaboration with SYNYO (Vienna), Sine (Munich) and Eticas (Barcelona).
