This edition’s main theme is “the place”, referring to murals, as well as other urban art objects that often become landmarks. In this sense, they transform an anonymous, amorphous space into a recognizable, emotion-filled place. The buildings for this year‛s works were proposed by the residents of Łódź.

Besides of the creation of murals, activities like workshops, screenings and tours around the newly created works will happen. The full schedule can be found here. Soon we are going to share more information and pictures of the Festival. Stay tuned!

After living in São Paulo for a few years, Giovanna fell in love with art in the streets. This motivated her to be involved with the production of events in the public space. Aiming to be more specialized in this topic, she did a Master in Arts and Culture in Rotterdam. There she explored the role of SAT's upcoming museum in the legitimation of street art. Currently, Giovanna works with collection management and research at Street Art Today.
