BURLINGTON, VT (04/08/2016)– Callie Browning of Monroe, GA was one of 12 Champlain College students who planned and hosted an interactive street art showcase at Champlain College’s campus in Dublin, Ireland.
The students, from Champlain College’s Stiller School of Business and Division of Communication & Creative Media, have been planning the event all semester as part of their coursework in the Creative Dublin class, which is run from Champlain’s academic center in Dublin, Ireland.
The event featured a friendly competition among local graffiti artists accompanied by music from Dublin buskers and other street performers. Through the event, the class aimed to celebrate the vibrancy that street art brings to Dublin while fighting the stigma against graffiti art and street performing. There were more than 1,000 people attending the event.
