Festival Description

Organized in 1993, the International Street Art Festival aims to support the cultural exchange between European countries through education and history, and the promotion of respect for differences and individual identity. In the beginning of the festival there was a trend toward revolt against official culture and limitations. In the 1990s a social and political transformation took place in Poland that caused a dramatic change in the cities. Not necessarily the large number of new and modern buildings—but the function served by the urban area itself. The infrastructure was altered by hundreds of newly opened restaurants, pubs, cafes, shopping centers, and the underground which moved life into the streets. The festival opened eyes to the fact that the urban setting can become a natural environment for artistic events. The Street Art Festival addresses itself above all to young people, because mainly they shape the dynamics of life in Warsaw. The city provides an opportunity for people to meet each other, to offer young people aesthetic experiences, and to become a culture-friendly place which helps to create culture.
