WE LOVE PUBLIC SPACE FESTIVAL 2019 ‘ART AND PUBLIC SPACE’
The ‘We Love Public Space’ Festival (WLPS) aims to establish an open conversation about how city makers deal with developments that determine the design and use of public space. The third edition of the WLPS Festival focuses on the role and significance of the arts for public spaces. Like no other, the artist is able, apart from practical reality, to intervene in public space, to disrupt it, to question it and to place it in a different perspective. How and for what purpose do artists manifest themselves in public space? Which strategies do they use?
