[Exclusive] Meet Portugal’s Gang of Graffitiing Grandparents
Meet Portugal’s oldest graffiti posse: a motley clan of retirees, virally known as “Graffiti Grandmas.” These are the members of Lata 65, a WOOL Fest arts education group for seniors founded by Lara Rodrigues. For the past few years, Rodrigues has been dedicated to breaking down ageist stereotypes and cultural perceptions through her senior-focused theory seminars and two-day workshops—the latest of which was reported on by The Creators Project Spain earlier today. At the end of each session, the founder takes her class to the streets for a practical application of her lessons. These involve students’ handmade stencils and copious amounts of spray paint.
