Before – After
„…when borders turn into bridges“
An International Street Art Workshop on Borders
may 10th through 17th 2013 with Brücke/Most-Stiftung, Dresden, Germany
Program (based on the Call for Participants):
Borders can protect you. But borders can also hinder you from going somewhere… There are borders between people, between cultures, between countries, between neighborhoods, between social groups, between music styles… – What if we turned borders into bridges?
The main project activity was to jointly work on the topic border. Our instruments for dealing with it were street art techniques like graffiti, cut out´s and stickers. Grey walls, grey borders changed and became something that we wanted it to be: a bridge between people, a creative space of communication instead of a dead place of forced silence. On the basis of this idea we colored up some walls in Dresden.
The multinational group was accompanied by professional street art trainers.
