This podcast—led and produced by Wynter Haley Scott—examines our “Street Art Workshop & Tour” with Declan (tour guide) and Rob (workshop guide) of Alternative Berlin Tours. According to the tour company, “On this two-part tour, we take the back streets and discover some of the latest, greatest and oldest examples of street art, graffiti, and mural art in this famous capital of urban art. The street art tour component is a detailed look at local and international artists who have left their amazing art on the streets of Berlin.” Further, they note that all of their guides are “street artists/graffiti writers and experts on the scene and will show you some of the best stencil art, throw ups, mural art, hall of fame pieces, paste ups, tagging, ad busting, heaven spots, burners and installations, while teaching you who is behind the art and what their motivations are.” Finally, the tour concludes “in a former abandoned margarine factory in the district of Lichtenberg where you will get the opportunity to paint and receive instructions on various street art and graffiti techniques from both local and international artists. You’ll then get to make your very own canvas piece to take home with you as a memento of this truly Berlin experience!”
