Pre-Conference Tour: Lisbon Street Art Tour

The Arts in Society Conference is pleased to announce the Pre-Conference Tour.

Join other conference delegates the day before the conference for a walking tour of Lisbon's street art scene.

During this walking tour, participants will learn about the different styles and techniques used by street artists as well as the (inter)national artists whose work can be found throughout a patchwork of streets, alleys, and squares in Lisbon. The tour will highlight the political, economic, and social issues that give rise to Lisbon’s street art and graffiti scene. In addition to learning about the art, participants will also learn about the history of Lisbon and its neighborhoods. The tour includes a street art walk, a ginjinha (a typical shot of cherry liquor), and an interactive workshop.
