Wallspot is not only for urban artists, photographers and all types of creators who work creating art in and around public spaces, it’s also for urban art lovers who want to follow new creations in their city up close.
No, registering and updating your ac-count with Wallspot is totally free.
If you want to contribute a wall, you can send us an email to email@example.com with your contact details, the country where you reside and the exact location of the wall. We’ll also need at least one photo of the wall. You’ll then need to sign a collaboration agreement between the contributor and Wallspot which states the specific terms and conditions of the contribution.
Anyone who is interested can manage walls at a site: a private property owner with available walls, an organisation or an arts manager. If you wish to become an organiser for Wallspot please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us by clicking on the box “managing walls: get in touch” or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. Book a wall and decide where you want to paint. You have a maximum of three days to complete your pro-ject. To confirm the booking, you must first accept the terms and con-ditions. 2. Download the booking confirmation which states the place and time for your project. 3. Once you’ve finished, upload the photo of your work to the website or App so other users can see it.
In this section you can manage the walls you've booked, as well as seeing those you’ve already used. There is a record of wall interventions listed by date. Then you can upload one or more photos of your artwork (max. 3MB).
The system will only let you upload a photo of your artwork if you have previ-ously made a booking for the wall. If you have made a booking, you can upload a photo on to your profile. Once you’ve published the photo of your work, Wallspot will also publish it on the platform’s social networks so your work can be seen by more people.
You can book a wall through the section “Spaces”. Once there, you can search for the place and the dates you want to complete your project to see if the space is available. You can also search for the space directly on the map. Here, there is also a list of all the walls we have with a photo and information about each one, such as its dimensions and previous projects. To book a wall, you need to register an account.
You can choose any wall on the website or app that has not already been booked on those dates. If the system doesn’t let you confirm the booking, it’s because it isn’t available on the dates selected. If this is the case, you can choose the book another wall or wait until this one becomes available.
Wallspot spaces are designed as dynamic, free spaces for art interventions on rotation. As such, we cannot guarantee any minimum or maximum time for artwork to remain on the wall.
It is up to the artist to decide where and how to paint. Usually, walls have already been painted so it is up to the user to decide which area to cover.
You’ll have no problem as all walls available for booking on Wallspot are legal spaces that have an official permit for art interventions. When you make your booking, you must accept Wallspot’s terms and conditions. The system will then issue a booking confirmation (your permit) that you can download and take with you, together with a valid form of identification, when you are working on your project. On the booking document, there’ll be information about the arts manager in charge of the chosen space. If there are any concerns or incidents, you can get in touch with them to solve the issue.
No, we only provide the space. The rest of the materials will need to be brought along by the user.
- You must bring the booking confirma-tion for the wall and a valid identity document with you when painting. Otherwise you may be apprehended by the local authorities. The booking confirmation provided by the system is your permit for approval to paint on the wall. You can also download the booking confirmation through the app. - The intervention must be kept within the boundaries of the wall. You cannot paint on the borders, on the sides or on the floor. This platform was designed for everyone to enjoy, but this also means that all users have a responsibility to ensure that everything works smoothly. - The freedom for artistic expression is one of the founding principles of the platform. However, when painting, we are all responsible for not causing offence or breaching basic human rights. Violating these regulations may lead to the user being blocked or ejected and, if necessary, criminally charged.
