Vision

Vision

Street art and performance in public spaces has a long and rich history, extending as far back through history as ancient Rome. Street performers have consistently benefited the social, cultural and economic landscape of many of the great population centres. We have a vision of our shared public spaces being places of community interaction, engagement and enjoyment.

Values

Values

Public spaces should be places of spontaneity which allow for serendipitous experiences, in which a sense of urban community prevails. To that end, consideration and compromise are right at the heart of our values as an organization. Because all humans posses an inherent dignity, each of us are worthy of being treated with consideration in our own right as persons, regardless of our views or affiliations.

Why join us?

Why join us?

As well as working politically to protect the interests of street artists and performers, we offer a wide range of training courses in partnership with other local bodies. For example, first aid training, music workshops, filing accounts, performance workshops, community engagement, dealing with officials/police, record-keeping, social outreach, etc.

Our high streets can be lively, dynamic, exciting and social places that give a sense of belonging and trust to a community... once we invest in and create social capital in the heart of our communities, the economic capital will follow.
