The website for the “Street Art Against COVID” project, by the Centre for Intercultural Studies (CEI) of ISCAP – P.PORTO, winner of the Santander UNI-COVID19 award, has just been launched and can be accessed at www.streetartcei.com, by clicking on the new project’s logo.
“Street Art Against COVID” collects and maps the Street Art that have appeared in Porto during the confinement and pandemic months. “Street Art Against COVID” raises awareness for the art that is being created in the streets of Porto, showing visitors and tourists that the art and the potential for tourism of the city is well alive.
The 6 new routes of “Street Art Against COVID” include “Uptown”, “Boavista”, “Historical Centre”, “Eastern Porto”, “River Douro”, and the “Route of NHS” with art works that pay tribute to our healthcare professionals. “Street Art Against COVID” covers a total of 64 POIs (Points of Interest) and 178 images, constantly updated and expanded.
The Santander UNI-COVID19 award is promoted by the Santander Totta Bank, as a response to the emergency situation caused by the current crisis, in order to highlight and support initiatives with a social impact that the academic community is developing in this adverse context.
The “Street Art Against COVID19” project continues the StreetArtCEI project, with the goal of supporting artists, small entrepreneurs, and local communities in the challenges of the new Post-Covid19 reality.
