    the city recently put out an advertising through a local graffiti website, offering jobs to graffiti writers only. One job consists of managing and dealing with 3 legal walls, the other is organising legal murals throughout the city, and the last job is giving graffiti classes to kids. They will examine each submission, and there will be an interview with 2 city officials and an ex-writer.

    do you think graffiti is something to be taught at school? they want you to teach how to paint a nice piece.
    In my opinion its strange that the city tries to encourage kids to graff, so that when they grow up, theyre good at bombing, because some of those kids will probably be corrupted.

    There was someone who wanted me to talk about graffiti at a seminar for this middle school where I live.The dude got my phone number from someone who knew me and called me out of the blue.He called back a few days later and I told him he must have got the wrong number-I wouldn't want to do that(explaining graffiti)..that is up to the person themselves if they get sparked to do it.Not to mention,the whole episode was just too weird.It sketched me out.......and I have yet to find out who "the person" is who knew me.

    well maybe the city got smart and decided that maybe if they teach kids how to do graffiti then they won't see a bunch of wack shit painted on walls therefor everything will look good

    SOUNDS VERRY FISHY, I BELIEVE THAT GRAFF IS SOMETHING YOU LEARN ON YOUR OWN OR IS PASSED DOWN TO YOU FROM MENTORS OR CREW MEMBERS........I THINK THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF GRAFITTI SCHOOL IS REDICULAS......MY TOWN IS WHERE I LEARNED HOW TO GET DOWN, NOT SOME CLASS ROOM.

    I've heard of a few cities doing community art programs for the kids. It's mostly to build self esteem and community pride by having these kids paint a mural. But I dunno ... what you are describing sounds kinda fishy (or porky if you will).

    yeah..there was a program in d.c. that taught graf to inner city elemetary school kids...who knows why they thought that was a good idea..but it happens..

    the program was hip hop oriented..not specific to graf.,.

    maybe the city realizes they aren't winnind the war on graf, so at least they could have some nice graf taught to kids so that when they paint, it is something constructive, and positive....or they don't feel like spending money on artists to beautify, so they get graf writers to do it for free?

    who knows..
    anyway, if there are no entrapment laws protecting you, i'd think twice before sitting down with city officials...

    I heard about a berry undercover program at Genzyme to create superhuman writers. They cloned Cope2 and gave him a third arm and the cock and balls of the race horse, "Drinking and Driving". I heard he writes Z-Ski. That is some 21st century shit.
