Wallspot is a system for managing legal walls for artistic interventions that use the public space as a means for creation.

Origin

Wallspot has sprung up from the need for a single, unified way to integrate and bring together all those engaged in urban art: artists, photographers, arts managers and promoters, the general public and the local government. Committed to becoming an international platform aimed at creators and lovers of urban art, Wallspot’s goal is to bring together all types of professionals engaged in this art form, creating a global urban art community.

Philosophy

We take the public space to be a place for people to gather, to build collectively and for social transformation. We’d like to foster a social dynamic that brings new cultural values to the city, bridging the gap between the artistic community and society. Our goal is to support quality artistic creations, open to all types of discipli-nes, under one social philosophy that calls for the active participation of all sectors of society.

The team

We are a multidisciplinary team of pro-grammers, designers, creatives, sociologists, arts managers and curators. This broad professional reach means we can understand and approach projects from different points, providing for an all-round vision. We work with pioneering innovation that unites technology and urban art so that it can gain more momentum and recognition worldwide, creating new channels for public participation. Our goal: transform how we value public spaces from and for society through urban art.

Somos una plataforma de arte urbano, que creemos en el arte como herramienta de dinamización social y cultural del espacio público.
Incentivamos la participación ciudadana a través del arte en la calle como herramienta para favorecer la cohesión social. El arte se convierte así en una herramienta de mediación comunitaria, consiguiendo una ciudadanía más implicada, poniendo en contacto a grupos sociales diversos, trabajando para afrontar los conflictos vecinales de forma positiva. Apoyamos a los artistas locales, ofreciendo la oportunidad de trabajar de forma profesional y de promocionar sus carreras.
Realizamos proyectos y programas de intervención social a través de la creación artística. Algunos de los proyectos más destacados son Wallspot, una plataforma digital que gestiona espacios legales destinados a intervenciones artísticas, y Ús Barcelona, un festival de arte urbano y espacio público que tiene como objetivo dar nuevas funciones a espacios de la ciudad que están en desuso.
