NUART Festival in Stavanger, Norway kicks off a strong line up of panels and discussions today, starting off with the inaugural Pub Debate, headed up by team captains Evan Pricco, Editor in Chief at Juxtapoz, and writer Carlo McCormick, the two go head-to-head with artists Harmen de Hoop and Bortusk Leer to explore the subject: Should Art Have to Carry a Deeper Meaning?


The rest of the program looks at ‘Situationism, DIY Culture & Street Art’ through a series of keynote speeches, before moving on to a film night hosted by Brooklyn Street Art.


Saturday’s seminars explore the them of ‘Play’ in art, before moving on to workshops, film screenings and the opening night of the Nuart exhibition, before concluding Sunday with a street art tour of Stavanger to check out the old and new work of the artists that have passed through for the festival.
