Open Street pursues the development of street arts as component for cultural and social promotion of urban and territory environments involved, aiming to extend the approach to live show to all social classes. Giving to street show the value of ingredient for social life of communities, means to allow the huge cultural European heritage represented by popular performing art, to re-appropriate its place inside its more genuine audience: public of street and square; it means to take theatre, music and dance in places where they could otherwise never be able to go; it also means to grant a cultural chance to classes of people that, due to social or economic discomfort, can hardly have access to theatres or venues dedicated to performing arts. OPEN dedicates its activity to suburbs, to abandoned areas, to crucial spaces for social life and cohesion which become day by day more emptied and lacking of occasions for exchange and sharing.

The project aims to involve local and regional institutions into this process of redevelopment: the academic sphere, the representatives of art sector, but especially the local associations that convey the desire of participation of citizens into the social life. In the development of the activity plan, the festivals are joined one each other by the active participation of dozens of volunteers engaged in the organization of events.

This element allows to underline the value of street arts as a theatre where all are at same time spectators and actors, a theatre with a deep social vocation. Boards involved in promotion of territory and volunteering associations constitute an important resource which will be able to develop important activities and new services for street arts. This "active power" has given its contribution in the success of many street festivals, by shaping them into participated occasions of cultural life of territory: some representations will be invited to take part to Forum and will be involved in activities of project.

The OPEN network will be constituted by institutions having a proved experience in promotion of street arts so much as to be considered a "reference point" regarding this art sector. This partnership will allow to share all resources and contacts which are the very "junctions" of street arts. Artists, schools, operators, training and production centres, city councils involved in events, local institutions, boards and media will be linked to network. All of them will participate to the International Forum which has permanents seats in Italy, Belgium and Germany.

The Forum aim will be to detect all necessary strategies for spreading of street arts in cooperating countries, checking problems arising in event organization and urban planning ambit, by collecting proposals and promote scientific studies from institutions involved, sustaining actions regarding new structures and services for the sector. Particular attention will be paid to artistic assets: this will be done by settling out 2 International Showcases to which European artists and promoters will attend in order to favour the match between offer and demand in an European ambit, to speed up the process of respective cultural integration and to promote the development of a common cultural identity in the sphere of the popular performing art. The project is capable of great visibility and deep interest by an ample audience of citizens.

This will be possible thanks to the events programmed, linked to prestigious Festivals organized in respective countries by coorganizers involved into project. In these occasions the project will favour the mobility of artists from countries involved in project, giving chance to a good number of shows to tour between the various events organized by network. Many initiatives will be proposed outside of network, to other art operators and local administrations, to obtain the adoption of policies by local boards and institutions, useful for promotion of street arts in a wider context.
