Street Arts Academy

Reclaiming the Streets!
Emergency Exit Arts’ Street Arts Academy (SAA) works with young people across the UK to make creative interventions in public spaces.

Combining Visual and Performing Arts, SAA works with 13-21 year olds from across London, the UK and Europe to make unexpected art moments/events/performances/installations happen in the spaces in which they live, learn, work and play.

Why Street Arts?
Street Arts sets the audience and performer free from the constraints of formal or paid for arts, leaving space for invention, improvisation and interaction. It is a space where surprise is sought and anything is possible- moments that are shared in the instant and are completely unrepeatable.
