THE PURPOSE
For a few years now, street art has been flourishing in Yangon despite the prejudices existing around urban art. The young generation started to express themselves, using the city as an open sky gallery to express their ideas, their hopes, their artistic vision.

The Yangon Street Art Festival is teaming up with these artists to showcase the variety of urban art’s faces, from graffiti to music, dance and video.

Through various activities around town, the festival is working to raise awareness about an art form still little known and the possibilities the involvement of this young generation of artists can bring to the development of the city and preservation of its heritage.

THE PROGRAM
From December 1st to 6th 2015, throughout Yangon, the IFB will propose a series of workshops, live performances and conferences.

For the occasion 3 artists from France representing different aspect of street art are joiningmore than 30 Myanmar street artists.
