Program Description

“When most of us think of how the elderly spend their retirement, we wouldn't picture our grandparents enjoying street art, or even spraying their tag around the city. However there is a new creative workshop that teaching the elderly all about street art in Portugal. LATA 65 is probably the world's most interesting graffiti gang. The new urban workshops strive to break down stereotypes and ageism by teaching street art to senior citizens.”
