Beyond the wall: The International Street Art Contest

The Festival of Resilience returns with the third edition of the International Street Art Contest. Launched for muralists and illustrators, the Contest of # Resilienza2020 – promoted by the Ass. ProPositivo- starts from digital but aims to continue the path into the real world.

In the last three years people from more than 20 countries around the world answered to the call, 50 artists were involved and over 30 works were created in 4 towns in Central Sardinia. Three months after the outbreak of the pandemic, European, national and regional institutions are trying to outline macro-policies to deal with the health, social and economic emergency. In the meantime, however, Italy’s future will also depend on the organizational and planning strengthening of the territorial systems. For various areas of the country, in particular the most internal and marginal ones, the transition from phase 1 of virus resistance to phase 2 of resilience will be a crucial step to find a new balance in the post world -Covid, in which to adapt, reorganize and transform.

In response to the pandemic and the global crisis, # Resilienza2020 has developed a beehive structure (casiddu in Sardinian), starting from digital and then projecting itself into the physical space with the reopening of the country. In this perspective, Propositivo launched the initiative “Beyond the wall ” (third edition of the international street art contest), for muralists and illustrators from all over the world.

The theme is closely linked to the reduction of physical spaces, which determines concerns and feeds the flow of questions and responsibilities from the individual to the global system. However, it makes us all “a little more similar” and in this circumstantial similarity we can focus on the imagination, we have time to analyze not only our own experience but ourselves as individuals or professionals, in relationship with the dimension of others. This is referred to the community in which we live in, interpersonal relationships, collective responsibilities, working conditions, choices linked to safeguarding the environment.

The selected artists, both for the street art category and for that illustration, will be evaluated by:
– A technical jury (artistic partners such as Non Solo Murales San Gavino, Home (network of the Urban Center Cagliari’s artists)
– Stefano Cipolla, art director of L’Espresso magazine
– Emiliano Ponzi, international illustrator
– A popular jury (local partners such as Youth Forum, Macomer Cultural Services Center and other organizations)
– A social media jury 6 winners will be selected.
