Many people do not know what the Street Art is all about but this is something a group of artists (musicians, designers, painters, authors) of Thessaloniki is intending to change. And that’s how the story of the Street Art Festival was born in Thessaloniki. The basic idea is to bring together young people and in general creative people of Thessaloniki (but not necessarily only from Thessaloniki), and give them the opportunity and step to express themselves. The SAF hosts Dj sets, concerts, live streetdance shows, parallel artistic interventions, live graffiti, live skate, live bmx action, ” Indoors” art exhibition by students, faculty graduates of Fine Arts and individual artists. Seminars of Streetdance, Beatmaking, Dj Scratching-Turntablism, workshops comics, animation, skate! It’s definitely one of the most promising youth festivals in Thessaloniki.
The festival is being hosted in the exhibition area of Helexpo and held every for two days every June. During the festival the city of Thessaloniki is gets into a different atmosphere, more colorful. In 2015 the festival will take place on 15th and 16th of June.
