This site is called Outa-space because working class artists often lack the place to make and create work. Whether it be lack of studio, rehearsal areas or just not the resources to be the artist their heart calls them to be.

The site is called Outa-space because the street, the squares and all the common places we mix in are where we need to decide our future. This collective action and street democracy should lead the future of humanity.

The site is called Outa-space because we need to take our minds above the clouds to look down on our planet, to dream, to wonder, but also to see everything in the context of everything else.

Art is just a normal human activity, not a special act by a clever person. The creative moment is central to what humans do to survive and solve problems.

We have a problem of Capitalism, it’s the central problem of humanity. Artists have no choice but to turn their attention to it but as individual creators we are often weak.
