This September, Croydon will host RISEfestival, London’s largest international urban art festival.

RISEfestival is a celebration of the globally recognised movement that is urban art. In a short time, this increasingly popular art form has not only caught the imagination of people around the world but has grown its identity with visual diversity at an incredible rate. It is becoming harder to find a town or city in any part of the world that doesn’t feature some form of urban or street art.

Urban art prides itself on being for the people because it isn’t confined to the constraints of interior walls that are often hidden inside a museum or gallery. Due to the work being on display in the streets – 24/7 – urban art is not only accessible to all but continues to evolve organically at an amazing rate. Those who know have seen how urban art can build a sense of place for an area, also helping to affirm its identity. This kind of art can truly reflect and represent its community, with a diverse approach that means most people will find something that they find aesthetically pleasing.

RISEfestival is committed to 4 core principles:

1. Showcasing exceptional talent – the widest possible range of visual styles and techniques involved in this art form. RISEfestival has engaged with artists who are pushing boundaries or show exceptional creativity in their field making sure all of its forms are represented and respected.

2. Impact – RISEfestival is committed to considering the effects of our activities on our local community and providing as many opportunities as possible for local residents.

3. Inclusivity – Urban art is inclusive to all and exclusive to none. Making certain that we provide the best opportunities to engage with our programme by creating programmes accessible and FREE to all members of our community

4. Diversity – While showcasing many known names in this art form it is also essential that we provide areas for artists of all backgrounds and we reflect a high level of diversity of the artists involved
