URBAN ART & ACTIVISM TOUR
Our tour explores several areas of the south of the city, namely the historic and industrial barrios of La Boca and Barracas. These neighbourhoods are steeped in art and history, and home to some of the most huge and spectacular murals in the city as well as recent urban art festivals and artistic projects.
This route combines the historical framework that has shaped the different facets of the graffiti and urban art movement of Buenos Aires with large scale projects far off the beaten path. This tour takes an in-depth look at the effect of politics, economics and social change on Buenos Aires street art and activism. You’ll finish the tour with a greater understanding of how Buenos Aires’ history has influenced public expression.
This tour is lead in English and we explore both on foot and using our private air-conditioned minibus. The tour finishes in a central location in San Telmo.
