CHEAP is an independent project promoting street art as a new tool for fueling urban renewal and investigating local geographies.

 

Born in 2013 in Bologna (Italy) by the creative effort of 6 women, CHEAP is a yearly festival that involves an international open call and a selection of guests invited to carry out site-specific projects scattered throughout Bologna’s urban landscape and outskirts.

 

CHEAP is a grassroots, nomadic entity cultivating the hybridization of expressive languages, supporting participatory pathways and working to collectively re-appropriate spaces where creative energies can be unleashed.

 

Beside the festival, CHEAP has developed a project called CHEAP on BOARD: unconventional street poster art and communication projects, public awareness campaigns, site-specific projects to raise awareness about social issues on the city government’s unused notice boards, several hundred boards scattered around downtown Bologna.
