Shannon Callahan is completing a dissertation for a MPhil in Public History and Cultural Heritage at Trinity College. Her topic is on street art and the ways in which tourists and locals alike are intentionally interacting with this medium. Specifically, she is interested in street art walking tours and phone apps that are used to direct enthusiasts to the art. She is questioning the effectiveness and authenticity of these programs in conveying the history, culture and intention of street art and artists.
If there are any practicing artists with information on tour groups, guides, social media, etc. she would greatly appreciate an opportunity to chat further. Contact her by email at email@example.com.
