The graffiti : After the successful mission of the first BSF, to breathe life into the abandoned hotel of Vatera and fill it with color, this year's aim is to create a series of colorful murals, in honor of the 80 years since the death of Theofilos (1870-1934). Our intention is to create a route along the city, marked by murals in specific locations starting from the ancient port of Mytilene with final destination the museum of Theofilos Chatzimichael-Teriade. This route will represent the connection and transition from the traditional Theofilos's murals to the modern graffiti arts and techniques. The participation for the graffiti artists is open-as it was last year- and EVERYONE can participate by sending an email at graffiti@beachstreetfestival.gr, there is room for everyone! (The entrance for the audience of the graffiti part is free). Also, during the Beach Street Festival there will be graffiti seminars for anyone wishing to learn the history of graffiti and try their own skills! The exact locations and the graffiti-writers' names will be announced a month before the beginning of the festival. The festival is supported by the N.Aegean region and the municipality of Lesvos through the cultural programs "Pelagos Politismou" and "Lesviako kalokairi".
