About Us

Cheap is an independent project promoting street art as a new tool for fueling urban renewal and investigating local geographies.

Born in 2013, Cheap is a yearly festival that involves an international open call and a selection of guests invited to carry out site-specific projects scattered throughout Bologna’s urban landscape and outskirts.

Cheap is a grassroots, nomadic entity cultivating the hybridization of expressive languages, supporting participatory pathways and working to collectively re-appropriate spaces where creative energies can be unleashed.
