ENGLISH: PRESS INFORMATION

The "Graffiti & Street Art Festival Styria" will take place in Furstenfeld for the fourth time. Young "Graffiti & Street Art" artists  are invited to work together with international renowned artists on themes like society and youth-related issues and to present their work to a larger public.
The Culture Department of the city Furstenfeld and the club "Future Icons" jointly organized this youth culture festival under the directorship of Mag.

He is one of the most sought after street art artists in Europe, with installations and exhibitions worldwide. Other international artists of the festival are Christian Pearson aka SUMO from Luxembourg and Lym Morena aka MOSTA from Venezuela.
This year, the festival is dedicated to the subject of "TRACKS", marking 100 years of the collapse of the multinational states and the occasion of the commemorative year 2014. To speak on the subject, we invited political scientist and economist Rado Carlo Poggi from Slovenia and historian and arts administrator Zsuzsanna Pálóczi from Hungary.

Young artists from Slovenia, Hungary and Austria will be working together with internationally renowned artists and mentors in the form of workshops and performances. Their sparkling ideas and artistic eye-catchers will be seen all over the city and presented at a great final show on October 17, 2014 at 19.00 clock in Grabher Haus.

The range of workshops will stretch from Graffiti Art, Street Art, Illustration and Graphics to lectures and discussions in the fields of history, philosophy, politics, art and culture.

The aim is to create a common Think Tank for young innovative art and culture. To highlight the creative potential of young artists from different countries and make a visible sign of the wants, needs, visions and new concepts of life for young people in the united Europe.

Festival Director Mag. Norbert Lipp: "The international character of the event, the presence of art in the public and the presence of artists and speakers will help to establish a creative and innovative hub for young art and culture in Styria!"

It is particularly pleasing that this project was chosen by the European Union, in the framework of an international application, and is promoted as a future role model for innovative and sustainable youth culture work integration in South-East Europe.
