Publish or Perish is the first rule of academia. Our eco-museum of street art is very proud to have achieved consistent production of quality research material. This year we have co-written 2 academic papers, prepared a workshop for 2019 on Street Art & Ethics with assistance from Sotheby's and Reinwardt, and have contributed to research papers, varying from high-school to Master thesis'.
The first conference attended was organised by ICOM (International Council of Museums) in British Railway Museum, York, UK. The theme was "Museums in Context and Partnership" and SAMA's abstract was selected for a presentation. The final paper written by myself and edited by Victoria Gonzalez of UvA was titled "Street Art as a Tool to Urban Dialogue".
The second paper written this year was by Vitoria Ramirez of Reinwardt Academy "Drama of Decision Making in the Heritage Field Ethically Addressing Street Art in Museums - Amsterdam as a Case Study."
