Street Art Festival "Rural Urban Art: Põlvamaa"

In summer 2018 a new street art festival focusing on small towns will kick off!

The Rural Urban Art festival in Põlvamaa will take place from the 9th to the 14th of July. This festival is a gift for the centenary of Estonian Republic.

During the festival 8 wall paintings will be created by professional street artists from Estonia and abroad. These paintings will be created keeping in mind the local surroundings. The purpose is to add variety and colour to the public space and living environment. Also, the aim is to have a long-term positive effect on the local area.

In addition to the wall painting process, the festival offers a cultural program with activities to the local community.
