The Ministry of Culture recognises Wallspot as one of the best cultural and creative industries projects
- Wallspot is Rebobinart’s initial project to technologically manage the free walls of different cities in order to be able to paint legally and safely.
- The initiative received an award at a gala event organised by the Subdirección General de Promoción de Industrias Culturales at the Espacio Fundación Telefónica in Madrid.
In a round table with Proyecto Ballena and Fira Trovam Proweekend, the director and founder of Rebobinart, Marc Garcia, was able to explain the birth of Wallspot from the management of Murs Lliures, the first initiative of the production company.
Nowadays, Wallspot has internationalised and manages more than 90 walls where people can paint legally and safely in up to 20 different cities. Anyone who wants to paint only has to book their wall from the website or the app, make their creation and upload a photo of the final result. In this way, the initiative gives space for infinite cultural action, constantly renewed, without fear of being censored or sanctioned.
Since the first wall managed by Rebobinart in 2012 under the name Murs Lliures, the existence of this project now called Wallspot has facilitated the recovery of the artistic fabric, the generation of a pool of new creators and the destigmatisation of the practice of urban art.
