OPENAIR MUSEUM FOR URBAN ART
The Urbane Kunstraum Wuppertal (UKW) is a project of the non-profit association WupperOne929 UrbanArt e. V. and is designed as a permanent open-air museum spread over the Wuppertal city area with exhibits by international StreetArt artists on local topics to create awareness for the diversity of urban art, to promote its participatory character, to enable cultural participation, to shape HeimatRaum in a hip way and to actively and creatively reconnect people with their city(Heimat)Raum.
Pimp home with international street art on local themes
People from Wuppertal's neighborhoods along the valley axis are brought into open working and discussion processes on the topic of home and identity in a podcast series to work out the unique selling points of their hoods.
The special features of Wuppertal's hoods are gradually being transformed into wall art by international StreetArt artists along the valley axis from Vohwinkel to Langerfeld-Mitte, leaving behind stories from the individual neighborhoods and their people.
The international interventions are accompanied by various urban space-impacting actions, our HoodActions, in the form of educational (e.g. artist talk), practical (e.g. graffiti workshop), and/or encounter (food, drink, meeting) opportunities.
