SAT SEPT 7. 14:30–15:00 Artist talk and Q&A with Jad El Khoury: Tower of Wind – with Sami Wakim, Founder of Street Art United States.

For the last 10 years, Sami has run a platform dedicated to street art culture called “Street Art United States” where he engages more than 190,000 followers worldwide on social media. He has interviewed hundreds of artists and documented their work, making it possible for these artists to share their imagery and ideas with a wider community. Sami’s mission is to support street artists in instilling a sense of hope and history through creative expression; unfortunately, in many inner city communities their voices are muffled, sometimes even oppressed. Street Art United States often focuses on projects that have a strong message related to issues such as injustice, poverty and racism. Sami has also organized several legal street art murals in the Boston area and has hosted local and international artists who have contributed to the flourishing street art community in the city.

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 7. 14:30–15:00 Artist talk and Q&A with Jad El Khoury: Tower of Wind – with Sami Wakim, Founder of Street Art United States.
In association with Venice's Arte Laguna Art Prize. Festival artist Jad El Khoury will discusses his award-winning work.
