Nuart RAD is a pilot project developed as part of Oslo Municipality’s five-year action plan for street art, which promotes graffiti and street art as part of contemporary art in public spaces.
The project sees the area adjacent to the Akerselva river – which stretches for 8.2km through the centre of the city – become a venue for a new type of public art program that seeks to make art a part of everyday life. The Akerselva – historically viewed as something of a socio-economic and racial dividing line between east and west – offers the possibility for new narratives and art forms to emerge.
The project aims to celebrate the diversity of the four neighborhoods through which the river flows – Nordre Aker, Sagene, Grünerløkka and Gamle Oslo – and to encourage new ways of engaging with each other and our surroundings through the creation of an ever evolving and often ephemeral ‘art trail’.
