8 Pau pitches with graffiti
Convinced by the result, by the participation of the young people who took over the land without further delay and the inhabitants who organized a convivial tea party, but also the MJC des Fleurs and du Laü, the elected officials Jean Lacoste and Kenny Bertonazzi, who came to inaugurate it recalled: “It is within the framework of Urban Amassada, a cultural mediation action carried out by the City of Pau for two years, which means gathering in Bearn, that these creations where street art is linked to basketball, are produced in the different neighborhoods. »
As with the 14-July plot, the transformation of the playgroud has been attributed to the artist MAS Graffiti. For a week, the artist, who has solid bases and experience in “Graffiti” art (see his site masgraffiti.fr) composed his work, made the drawings respecting the official layout for the 3 against 3 tournaments. He was accompanied in the morning by two young people in civic service or in a youth workshop in Ousse-des-Bois, and in the afternoon by four spontaneous volunteers who followed his instructions and worked on the bomb, for a stunning result.
Latifa Marbi at the origin of the project, with her colleague Meryem Quinio, from the Culture Department of the City of Pau, responsible for missions on inclusive and social projects (such as Cultur’en bus and the Académie d’éloquence), is delighted with this new achievement which promotes the proper use and sustained occupation of the land.
