On Sunday, September 24, 2017, the Rustavi City Park will see a Street Art Day, which will challenge key areas of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – reduction of poverty, human rights, gender equality, education, environment protection and health.
The event is organised by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Institute for Development of Freedom of Information (IDFI) and the Rustavi City Hall in cooperation with partners and supporters – the Government of Sweden, UN Volunteers, Edgeriders, Futuremakers.
The Art Street Day brings together a group of well-known Georgian street and graffiti artists, such as LAMB, WPC, Dr. Love, Jokonda, Musya Qeburia, TAmOonz, Slow Pulse, Gamez, Chilone and the others.
The artists will create innovative murals on the walls of a summer theatre in the Rustavi City Park and will conduct workshops and master-classes for all interested in street art and graffiti.
The Street Art Day is part of the Global Goals Festival – Future in Focus, initiated by the United Nations in Georgia to promote the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Festival echoes an international Global Goals Weeks that brings together individuals, governments, businesses, civil societies, international organizations and other partners during the UN General Assembly in New York.
