Event: Pow Annual Graffiti Competion this Sunday

Sunday, 4th August 2013

8:00 - 21:00

Saigon Outcast | 188/1 Nguyễn Văn Hưởng, Thảo Điền, Quận 2

It has been 6 years since party Reborn, the last Graffiti battle at Saigon. Since then, Graffiti Saigon has been going strong but the competition amongst writers and groups has ceased. Graffiti, at its root, is a competitive art, it is beautiful only when there are fighting and battle by which writers can express their strong personality, their unique character in their graffiti pieces.

In order to revive the competition amongst the writers and to refresh the graffiti picture at Saigon, The Saigon Projects is proudly present the First annual contest "POW". This will play as a major playground for young writers in Saigon and nearby cities.

“POW” is the first annual graffiti competition in Saigon and Vietnam as well. The objective of the project is to draw a clearer picture of graffiti scene here, to know what is going on, who is writing and how they are writing.

Therefore we hope that “POW” will be an opportunity for writers so that they can meet, compete and have fun together from which they will know more about their skills, their styles or even tags. Besides, we will bring some local DJs, Rapper, Dancers to make it more engaging and exciting.
