What and How.
Introduced the graffiti section by showing books and pictures.
Pair activity. Sketch, think, and collaborate. Graffiti as a communication tool.
Give a sketchbook to each participant and encourage them to draw the first thing it came ut in their mind when they think about Lund. The time frame is 10 minutes.
Encourage the participants to share their sketch with another participant who is going to draw on the same page to complete the sketch.
Encourage the 2 participants to talk about their sketches.
After about two hours of brainstorming motifs, the participants will follow the pedagogues to the wall you are going to paint.
Suggestions for a graffiti workshop.
A strong suggestion if you are thinking to start a graffiti workshop activity is to invite an expert street artist who also has pedagogical experience working with inclusion.
Contact the municipality and ask for permits for a place downtown! We have asked LKF (the municipality organization that regulates all matters about buildings), and have got the formal permits to use a wall in a very central point, for one month. The focus of this section is to increase the feeling of belonging by using a place in town which is as visible as possible. The feeling to have the possibility to change the public space is a strong factor that increases the feeling of belonging to a place.
Try to have a plan B in case of rain!
Be sure to buy tools and supplies enough for all participants.
Count at least 6 spray cans for each, 3 primary colors, black, and white plus one other you like. Don't forget gloves!
Plan at least 6 hours of painting time and breaks in the middle. We planned the graffiti workshop divided into 3 sections:
day one for the first approach with the spray technique.
second day for refining.
It was a great experience which ended with an article in the regional newspaper!
