In the 2019 edition, the GRAFFITEA project is already a mature festival, with three previous editions that have changed the urban landscape of Cheste. A reference festival within the Valencian Community and visit of cultural interest. The great number of participants in the guided route, during the closing of the festival, proved it.
His new challenge, in addition to attracting the public following Urban Art and Art, has been to attract the interest of the participants. The 2019 call exceeded the expectations in number and quality of applications, completing a poster with 6 mural interventions, we have artists from 4 different nationalities.
The other objective, but not only of this edition but of all, has always been to bring culture to Cheste and his neighbors, to make them feel accomplices of this Art.
Apart from the mural works, how each year, mural painting workshops have been held in the schools and a drawing contest was held, also with the support of these centers, with a high participation and the holding of an exhibition in the City Council of Cheste.
The response of the residents of Cheste has been growing year after year, supporting and valuing all the work, offering more and more private walls and enjoying the works done.
Together, the City Council, neighbors of Cheste and the collective Wall Arttitude have made this project grow by locating Cheste as a cultural tourist destination, through urban art.
