Urban Art Festival has a long track record in promoting street and urban art with awe-inspiring festivals and events. Since 2013 this is the largest urban contemporary and street art festival in The Netherlands. It strives to introduce socially relevant thematic subjects and new art-forms into the country. This art fête often looks for international and European synergies to enhance and share the experiences and knowledge of the arts as well as to create an expansive platform of artists and initiatives. Furthermore, with this edition during ADE, curator Urban Art Now starts a series of events that explore art in the public space and the dynamics around it, in particular art within the social sphere.
