There were preseted such cities from Ukraine as Lviv, Lutsk, Ternopil, Rivne, Odessa, Kyiv, Donetsk, Sevastopol, and from abroad Berlin, Moscow, Krakow. This event showed great possibilities for communication between artist all over the world through language of STREET ART. City authorities and population got more informed, that Street art activism is not a destruction of walls and buildings in the city. It also makes them look beauty, esspecially grey walls which we see every day, while passing streets or suburbs. We found possibility to arrange permition
with building factory, to paint its fence, which is around 1 km length. By moving street art in to suburbs in to open air area, we changed opinion of City government and other state authorities, which cared little for the support of urban and street culture. Beign careless about such phenomenas before, they were loosing youth support , because this is environment that young people live and develop themself inside it. It is also one of the way to prevent different kind of addictions and bad habits, protect your health and life. Please find fresh walls here
