AthenSAF

ATHENS STREET ART FESTIVAL [ASAF] is a non profit, non subsidized, non governmental and all volunteer organization. It is an Year Around Independent European Contemporary Street + Urban Art Festival established and based in Athens, Greece.

A Non Profit attempt to promote Social Conscience and Action through Art.

The ASAF desires to provide an annual platform for European Artists, operating outside of traditional systems. Outsiders if you like. The event aims to stimulate debate by challenging entrenched notions of what art is, and more importantly, can be.

ASAF aims to provide a relevant, challenging and dynamic environment for artists, students, gallery goers and public alike, an event that aims to reflects the culture rather than try and define it.

ASAF aims to explore and present new movements and works from within the field loosely termed as Street Art. Street art has its roots in situationism, graffiti, post-graffiti, comic culture, stencil and street art among other things. It is without a doubt the most exciting development in visual art for decades. A “movement” that has caught the imagination of the general public, collectors, auction houses and curators the world over.

ASAF consists of a series of citywide exhibitions, events, performances, interventions, debates + workshops surrounding current trends and movements in street art practice by some of the worlds leading practitioners. It’s also has something of a “summer camp” for artists about it. Street art as a genre has developed significantly over the past few years, and ASAF is concerned with the task of identifying, promoting and presenting both pioneers and emerging talents within the scene. The artists who attend the festival are among the most acclaimed and progressive public art practitioners in the world.

ASAF continues to pioneer a new breed of art exhibition that is neither institutionalised nor commercial, giving the artists free reign to express themselves to the full. Without the usual restraints of curatorial and corporate preferences, the event consistently brings out the best in its invited guests.From the first week of June an invited European + Greek Team of Street Artists start to leave their mark on the city’s walls, both indoor and out, creating one of Europe’s most dynamic and constantly evolving public art events.

Athens Street Art Festival [ASAF] was formed by a group of committed individuals who are guided by a passionate belief in the power of art to create and convey personal experience and cultivate social progress.

ASAF is inspired by the notion that when art melds into the public realm in unexpected ways, it has the power to reach people beyond the traditional limitations of class, age, race and education to encourage public action.

ASAF is an ongoing interactive global art platform and collaborative catalyst to commission, produce and present ground-breaking and evocative art work, embedded in the issues and consequences of climate change.

ASAF will invite a series of exceptional artists dedicated to the moving image and innovative thinkers committed to fostering awareness and education to join us in our campaign for social change. Through this collaborative effort, we hope to provoke new perceptions, broaden awareness and education and find creative solutions concerning climate change and its consequences.
