On Day 1 of Nuart Aberdeen’s Street Art Conference, we address the theme of living heritage.


Speakers include Dr Erik Hannerz (Lund University, SE), Dr Enrico Bonadio (City, University of London, UK) and Professor Ilaria Hoppe (Catholic Private University, Linz, AT).


Topics include the preservation of street art under heritage law (Bonadio), the concept of ‘fame’ in graffiti as a form of intangible cultural heritage (Hannerz) and ‘bad street art’ as an everyday form of heritage (Hoppe). Day 1 closes with a panel discussion on strategies for safeguarding street art, with David Roos (STRAAT Museum, NL) Tim Marschang (Street Art Cities, BE), Sami Wakim (Street Art USA), Arne Vilhelm Tellefsen (Deconforml) and Stuart Holdsworth (Inspiring City).
