Street Culture for Regions brings those on the margins of society – NEETs, ethnic minorities, or migrant backgrounds, and those from deprived neighbourhoods – into both entrepreneurship training and meaningful economic activity, through the medium of “Street Culture”.
Street culture has grown exponentially in recent years, driven by the mainstreaming of youth culture and the revitalization of urban areas. From street art to food trucks, pop-up markets to cutting edge fashion and sport, street culture is any commercial activity that takes place “on the streets” and contains the creative forces that can mould lifestyles and drive the economy.
