CHEAP is an independent project promoting street art as a new tool for fueling urban renewal and investigating local geographies.
Born in 2013, CHEAP is a yearly festival that involves an international open call and a selection of guests invited to carry out site-specific projects scattered throughout Bologna’s urban landscape and outskirts.
CHEAP is a grassroots, nomadic entity cultivating the hybridization of expressive languages, supporting participatory pathways and working to collectively re-appropriate spaces where creative energies can be unleashed.
Every year CHEAP organizes a Street Poster Art Festival divided in two main components: pieces by guest artists and an open Call for Artists.
CHEAP selects guest artists to create site-specific work articulated throughout Bologna’s urban and suburban landscape.
CHEAP is: Antonella Ciccarelli/ Sara Manfredi/ Sonia Piedad Marinangeli/ Elisa Placucci/ Flavia Tommasini/ Elisa Visentini
