FiraTàrrega champions Fresh Street, the first European seminar for the development of street arts
From 9th to 11th September 2015
Tarrega, 8th June 2015-Next September, street art professionals from across Europe will meet in Catalonia for the launch of Fresh Street, the first European seminar for the development of Street Art.
The seminar will be jointly organised by FiraTàrrega and the Circostrada network, with the support of the Catalan Government's Department of Culture, the Ramon Llull Institut and the Spanish Cultural Action Organisation (Acción Cultural Española). The occasion hopes to assemble over 200 cultural key players (professionals, artists, cultural policy managers, press and critics) in order to sketch a general outlook of the genre in Europe today, and to reflect on how the street art of tomorrow may evolve.
The seminar will include debates, round-table discussions and an artistic programme, with the aim of encouraging discussion and an exchange of knowledge among participants. The main objective is to produce an analysis of the situation and to generate recommendations for the structure and development of street art in Europe.
The event will take place over 12th and 13th September as part of the FiraTàrrega 2015 festival for performing arts, under this year's theme More European than ever.
Circostrada, the European network for street art and circus performance, has more than 10 years' experience and over 70 members, and plays a key role in uniting professionals, artists, political representatives and researchers from all over Europe for the development of Street Art.
