The Graffiti Sessions event is organised by Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Southbank Centre and University College London.

Over a series of talks and workshops it will explore issues around the legality of street art, whether graffiti can be seen as a gentrifying influence and how graffiti and street art can contribute to “safer and more social cities”.

Speakers will include Adam Cooper, from the London Mayor’s Office, Detective Constable Colin Saysell and author and political theorist Chantal Mouffe.

The organisers also promise a host of international street artists.

Graffiti Sessions takes place at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Southbank Centre and University College London from 3-5 December. For more information visit graffitisessions.com.
