Street Art Festival 20179-11 June 2017
The Thessaloniki Street Art Festival starts today, June 9, and runs through Saturday. From the Street Art Festival Site (with a few modifications):
The main goal is to introduce a specific type of culture to the public and create a unique annual festival in Thessaloniki. Street art belongs to the urban environment and this festival is our way of showing it and familiarize the public with it. Top domestic as well as foreign professional artists will do what they do best for two whole days to show everyone the common forms of modern street art, to show everyone what street art is all about.
Street art is a form of art widely spread across the world with fans and artists increasing rapidly year after year. We believe it is time for our city to show that it has a part in the street art scene!
The story goes on... After 3 consecutive years of implementation, SAF grew, matured and bore fruit. More than 300 international artists from Greece and around the globe have so far participated. More than 40 companies collaborated and still collaborating. More than 25.000 visitors in the 3 years of SAF.
We are taking it to the next level. 2016 is on its way!
Music concerts, special dance shows, graffiti live action, skate-bmx-inline shows and contests, special gifts and competitions are on tap at SAF.
Added to all these workshops for dance, animation, comics, DJ's and an artistic exhibition of 47 artists have taken place and give the educational innovative model to the festival's roster of activities. Many surprises to come for the participants and the audience!
All together creating an interaction between arts, two colourful days in the centre of the city, in a place full of young artists and people. A view to the contemporary art through the eyes of the unique creativity of each artist participating. The personal inspiration of each creator as a perspective, the gift of spontaneity and youthful creativity. That's SAF, that's who we all the young people are. Freedom of our creative spirit and of our actions is unlimited!
