It has its roots in the street art subculture of Europe. R.U.A. is an organization and platform of curators and artists also based in Amsterdam that has its roots in community muralism projects in the Brazilian favelas. Both organizations work locally and internationally.
Urban Art NOW is an Amsterdam based non-profit organization for Street Art and Graffiti events, festivals and exhibitions. besides the yearly Urban Art Festival, UAN organizes big mural paintings, the Urban Art Academy, Street Art Markets and pop-up events between Amsterdam, Berlin and New York City.
R.U.A. – Reflexo on Urban Art is an initiative of passionate people who believe in the philosophy and share similar ideas. Although the organization is based in the Netherlands, the team that makes R.U.A. possible is an organic junction of mostly Dutch and Brazilian professions of different areas living and working in Brazil, the Netherlands and around the world. We are always developing ideas and new plans which lead to massive realizations and beautiful cooperations.
