Living Walls, The City Speaks, is an annual conference on street art and urbanism that began in August 2010 in the city of Atlanta. Along with changing the urban landscape, the Living Walls conference set out to highlight a number of problems facing the city. Living Walls did not just showcase art, but also built a platform for much-needed dialogue in the city.
The 2012 conference featured 26 artists who visually activated Atlanta’s urban landscape in the world’s first all-female street art conference.
The five-day conference included film screenings, lectures, block parties, gallery exhibits and bike tours. All events are free and open to the public.
Artists Gaia, Nanook, KnowHope, Martina Merlini, Neuzz, Sten and Lex created various murals along Edgewood Avenue.
