Romanian Street Art launches survey to shape the Open Call Theme for Artistic Interventions
Romanian Street Art, a cultural urban regeneration initiative, announces the launch of a survey aimed at gathering diverse perspectives to shape the themes for its upcoming open calls for artistic interventions. This innovative project, spearheaded by Save or Cancel in partnership with feeder.ro and supported by a network of artists, musicians, collaborators, and partners, aims to transform public spaces across Romania into vibrant hubs of creativity and community engagement.
The Romanian Street Art program comprises a series of 8 artistic interventions, 2 open calls, 5 creative art workshops, 4 guided tours, an album, a map, and an exhibition, all designed to humanise public spaces through the power of art. With art interventions planned in Brasov, Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, and Iasi, as well as online, the program seeks to foster dialogue, inspire creativity, and address social and environmental issues.
“Through Romanian Street Art, we reaffirm our belief in the transformative potential of art to redefine public spaces and inspire positive change,” said Cristina Popa, project coordinator. “This survey aims to engage with the community and gather insights into the social and environmental issues that matter most to them. By involving diverse voices in the development of our open call themes, we hope to create impactful artistic interventions that resonate with our audience and contribute to a more vibrant and inclusive urban environment.”
The survey invites participants to share their thoughts on street art and its role in addressing priority issues in Romania. By providing feedback on topics that deserve attention in public spaces, participants will play a crucial role in shaping the direction of the program. The survey is open to everyone interested in the intersection of art, community, and urban regeneration.
“We invite individuals from all walks of life to join us in this collaborative effort to harness the power of art for social change,” added Andrei Racovițan. “Together, we can create meaningful interventions that reflect the values and aspirations of our communities.”
