Graffiti - Urban Art without Age Limits

Lisbon subverts age stereotypes and graffiti cliches by connecting generations through urban art. The aim of the project is "to get elderly away from their knitting or sitting in cafes", to break down routines (Business Insider).

"Graffiti and street art have both often served to deepen the rift of misunderstanding between young and old, but there’s one art organization in Lisbon, Portugal that’s working to change that. LATA 65 works to destroy age stereotypes and turn senior citizens into street artists by providing them with spray paint cans, masks and gloves and finding them free spots in the city to tag up and paint!"
