Getting started with street art as an enrichment of the city

In the first episode of the HIJStakkies ALL CAPS specials, cultural journalist Jaap van der Doelen talks with Marthe Heltzel (policy advisor Art & Creative Industry at Rotterdam City Council) curator and organizer of Breda’s Blind Walls Gallery Dennis Elbers and visual artist Ricardo van Zwol. About how street art can enrich a wall, a home, a neighborhood and a city and can serve as city marketing. You will also hear about the importance of a portfolio, how to convince residents of a design, the preservation and impermanence of a painting and the freedom of artists within a commission.

The podcast was recorded live in front of an audience during the Insight program of street art festival ALL CAPS in Rotterdam. Enjoy listening!
