Future is Now! is a project that aims to address questions and challenges of the future with the help of a participatory process and the means of graffiti and street art in public space. The project was submitted two years ago by Bad Ischl media, culture and education manager Mario Friedwagner and is now being further developed by him in cooperation with Leonhard Gruber of Linz’s Mural Harbor.
Future is Now! brings urban flair to the Salzkammergut and conveys the culture of street art and graffiti through workshops and artist residencies. Large-scale facade paintings, also known as murals, are created as a lasting reminder. Since the emergence of this art form, the painted walls not only tell stories from the past and present, but also design utopias for a better future.
