Silverpiece is a street art workshop for everyone over 60. With the support of local artists*, the youth domain of graffiti practice is conquered and together opinions on age-based occupations are protested. At the same time effective as a performative intervention in public space, this workshop strengthens the courage and the desire to actively participate in urban events even at an older age.
The 3-day confrontation with street art from October 8 to 10 is seen as the starting signal for further interventions in public space. The result of the three-day workshop in which participants* from the 60+ generation will work together on street art will be on display afterwards.Silverpiece will ideally develop into an open group that participates in urban design with various artistic means and thus radiates a new attitude towards life.
