Sept. 10th 2015 - We were invited to participate in FRESH STREET#1 - European seminar for the development of Street Arts hosted by Circostrada Network, in partnership with FiraTàrrega. This flagship event brought together professionals, artists and policy makers from all over Europe for a key focus on Street Arts.
We presented our street action #relay by challenging Fresh Participants to a behind the scenes tour through Tàrrega, so that they could dive in their host city right after stepping off the bus which had driven them from Barcelona. We shortly explored the city leisurely, talking to others, meeting new people, searching for complicities with more than a hundred participants at a time while we did our best at following the game rules: walk in line, first one leads, last one counts up to thirty seconds and runs in front of the leader in order to overtake his/her place, and so on. No streets could be repeated. Silence was required, but games can change their rules if players agree on that! After an hour stroll we ended up in el Pati, an emblematic symbol of FiraTàrrega: the unconscious of every city is always chasing us.
Thanks a lot to all Fresh participants, Circostrada and Firatàrrega for this shared experience.
