  • Urban Arts City Tour Workshops


    Berlin is as known as internationally of its street art that is packed with visual images, colorful graphics and countless event posters on every corner. Street art is not only a special kind of art, but also combines the expression of one's own opinions, criticisms and reflections on society, politics, economics and visual youth culture. Nowadays, Street Art has long since transferred in the design of advertising, graphic and product design. Street art is part of their life world and, of course, belongs to the city scape. Although Graffiti and Street Art are present everywhere in Berlin, many Berlin children often do not know the political and historical dimension of this art form.

    This project Offers three different workshops for children and teenagers in the district of Pankow: the workshop "Street Art Mapping", "My City as a Playground" and "Cutting-Spraying-Painting". Through the workshops, the children not only learn the story and concept of street art, but also actively express their own thoughts about their everyday life, school, district or city with the art form of street art. After the workshops there will be an open call for all children and teenagers between the ages of 5 and 12 in Paris, Brussels, Berlin and additionally in China, where the resulting Street Art works will be presented in a joint touring exhibition.

    We want to prepare kids for their Street Art Submission to the Urban Arts International Competition! So we are offering 6 different workshops.

    Each workshop will cost 30 Euro for a parent and a kid (together). All materials are included in the price.

    If you register and complete 3 or more workshops, you can participate in the Urban Arts competition for free. If you register for all 6 workshops you can compete for free and have a further discount of 20 Euro for one workshop.


    Location of all the workshops: WEM Academy Thulestraße 44, 13189 Berlin


    Participants start with a map of the district of Pankow, and learn about the history of street art in general on an excursion, and learn the local context of urban graffiti with concrete examples in the district. What stories, ideas and opinions represent these pictures and texts? And how does this street art interact with the space, buildings and passers-by around it? The participants get a new access to their familiar environment and get to know their city again. In the workshop, the participants not only gain knowledge, but also draw their own unique map of Pankow, which reflects their experiences with street art and is itself a small work of art. 


    TOUR A*: 17.11.2019 (SUN): 13:00 - 15:00
    TOUR B*: 24.11.2019 (SUN): 13:00 - 15:00

    *Both tours must be completed to finalize this workshop.


    In street art, adbusting (visual interventions in advertising in public spaces) is a simple and popular way to comment on creatively images. With the billboards or posters on a street corner as a basis, the children playfully create a new context, a parody or they manage to create beauty, where previously only commerce, through imaginative interventions and supplements. The workshop takes place at WEM. A part of the space will simulate a public street with advertising. At this the participants can express their ideas and thoughts as adbusting with drawing and collage techniques.

    08.12.2019 (SUN) 13:00 - 15:00


    In this workshop the participants get to know very different artistic street art techniques. Colombian street art artist Juan Camilo Alfonso will give participants an introduction to street art in Berlin that inspired him, introduce and explain his applied techniques, and then work with participants to create a piece of street art! At the end all participants will present their share of the jointly created street art and exchange views on the process of creation.

    WORKSHOP A: 01.12.2019 (SUN) 13:00 - 15:00
    WORKSHOP B: 15.12.2019 (SUN) 13:00 - 15:00

We hope that with our activities, our participants have the chance of seeing different aspects of Street Art and the colours and vitality that it brings to our city. We are looking forward to work of arts from our little artists, who try to describe some city and express his or her feeling towards that city, which could be his/her hometown or somewhere he/she traveled to.
