10 years Street Life Festival, by Gifts and Gadgets and The Copy Shop, for one more year brought the city centre of Limassol back to life!
Yesterday, more than 20.000 visitors were found in the popular streets of Saripolou and Athinon, in the old town of Limassol. Building walls, sidewalks and abandoned houses became the canvas and the inspiration for many street artists, from all around the world, that want to express their creativity. Impressive and colourful graffiti art made the streets stand out of the crowd, giving the streets a more contemporary and urban character. And the reason for all these? Street Life Festival, organised for 10 consecutive year by Gifts and Gadgets and The Copy Shop.
Apart from the amazing graffiti drawings, many other activities drew the attention of the public making their day as memorable as possible: incredible choreographies, cool stunts with skateboards, jugglers and street performers. Visitors could also experience the street market consisting of over 50 different stalls with handmade jewellery, handcrafts, games, dog accessories, furniture and other.
All proceeds from the rent of the stalls go to Theotokos Foundation which also participates in the festival.
Amongst around 30 street art crews, visitors could meet international guest artists. Some of the local crews participating are Edmon 1419, Opsis, Rate, Paparazzi, Angel, Rock The Dog and OLAK.
The organizational part of the graffiti/street art, setup and design is a collaboration with 2c Design Box.
Throughout the day visitors could enjoy uplifting and dance beats from djs and local bands
Undoubtedly, this day was another amazing Street Life experience, full of joyful and creative moments!
