Teakster – Connecting Communities with Street Art

About the Session

Street art is now a recognised art form, which is being credited with tackling antisocial behaviour and potentially providing a low-cost tool for urban regeneration. Community art-based mural paintings can connect and engage local communities, inject life into depressed neighbourhoods and foster social and urban renewal. Learn how community art-based mural paintings can give opportunities for people, who aren’t artists, to be involved in street art.
