NPA and the NYSAT Ramifications

So I have been on a crazy long photo job that stole a week of my life, which is why I have not posted in a while. There are so many posts that I have waiting. I'm sorry. That said, I just spoke with one of the organizers of the Living Walls conference coming up in Atlanta. She has been in conversation with one of the NPA employees from Atlanta and they are worried about PublicAdCampaign coming into town in August. I told her that I thought it would be a good idea to invite NPA to speak at the conference as dialogue and conversation is the most important aspect of the PAC project. I truly hope that we get a chance to have a discussion with NPA, the employees, or anyone involved in the wildposting of commercial messages in relation to street art and open public communication. Ever since we launched the NYSAT project, I have been interested in what our influence has been, and I think this is a real opportunity to delve into what a direct action community project can do.

I look forward to talking with employees of NPA in Atlanta and having a serious open discussion about how their actions might affect the community at large. Look out for more details as things unfold.
