Let's talk truth.

There is a divide in the city of St. Louis between those that have, and those that have not. But like our iconic St. Louis Arch, we have an ability to bridge the divide and heal. StART is an innovative festival with a shared vision to start a dialogue. We hope to bridge socio economic / racial barriers through the creative and transformative process of art. During a weekend, a group of inspired and renowned street artists will convey on large canvases the emotions of the underprivileged and silenced in the city of St. Louis.

HOPE STARTS HERE.
