About this hub
The idea for a foundation active in the field of public space emerged in 2005, when as “Brain Damage” – an international magazine dedicated to street art – we took part in many European artistic projects. At that time we organized, among others, the Polish editions of international graffiti events (Write4Gold, Meeting of Styles) and one of the largest in Europe – Brain Damage Jam (www.jam.bd.pl).
Working on the magazine, the people we met during that period and the accumulated experience strengthened the belief that a non-governmental organization, focused on the promotion of culture which functions outside the main circuit, is needed. The natural consequence of the actions carried out, propped by the personal involvement of the members of the board of the Foundation, was a formal registration of the European Foundation for Urban Culture which took place in 2007. From the very beginning the Foundation’s objectives were clear: to promote and develop urban culture, with a particular emphasis on graffiti and street art. We organize international festivals and exhibitions, conduct workshops, film screenings, meetings and discussions. We carry out projects in public spaces and activities directed to local communities.
