Street Art Oslo curates, produces and disseminates art in public and private arenas through festivals, guided tours, workshops, site-specific commissions, exhibitions, publications and radio.
We define street art broadly as consisting of works of art produced both with and without permission, from large-scale murals to small-scale interventions, stickers, stencils, paste-ups, graffiti, sculpture and more.
We are dedicated to improving conditions for the production and dissemination of street art and graffiti by contextualising them within the wider fields of visual art, aesthetics, architecture, urbanism, sociology, anthropology, citizenship and education.
Our mission is to provide a bridge between street art and graffiti subcultures and the wider public. In doing so we aim to highlight non-institutional approaches to kunst i mellomrom (art in in-between spaces) and to inspire a shared sense of ownership over the visual realm in public space.
