Creative Workshop Teaches the Basics of Graffiti to Seniors in Neighbourhoods Around Lisbon

Developed by Coworklisboa in partnership with the Wool - Urban art of Covilha Festival, LATA 65 (lata means “can” in Portuguese), is an urban art workshop that teaches the basics of graffiti to seniors in various neighbourhoods around Lisbon, Portugal. Through the workshop attendees learn a variety of graffiti techniques, working directly with some of the best urban artists, ultimately incorporating their work in murals across the city. The goal of the project is to stimulate creativity in all elders outside of the context of traditional art venues, bridging the gap between generations and banishing ageist stereotypes.
