Urban Art Festival Styria 2023 at STUWO StudentCity Graz

Written by Hannes Wagner, May 04, 2023

Student life meets art again at the Urban Art Festival Styria this year. In June 2019, the STUWO dormitory StudentCity Graz hosted the “Future Icons Festival” – an international festival for street art, graffiti and young innovative art – for the first time. The residence manager Christa Lorenz came up with the idea to turn the apartment building of STUWO StudentCity Graz into a “piece of art”. Since then numerous works of art and installations were added to the inside and outside areas as well as the underground parking. This year the STUWO dormitory once again becomes an open-air gallery and art laboratory. Workshops, urban art and live music await you.
