On Tuesday September 27th, Caramundo organizes an Expert Meeting in NoLIMIT Amsterdam Zuidoost. With this meeting Caramundo wants to create a dialogue about the possibilities and positive influences of street art and graffiti in a city environment, and demonstrate how other cities in the world already integrate street art in their urban planning. In Brazil, graffiti and street art are used to uplift neglected urban areas and stimulate safety in those areas by involving local residents and by stimulating creativity.
