The European Youth Capital Maribor 2013 supports the urban subculture

September 7, 2013 - EYC

skejter_Maribor_slide_2At the conclusion of events, the European Youth Capital Maribor 2013 (EYC MB 2013) also raised the question of urban subculture in the city. The Maribor urban community is expanding every year and has already created a critical mass of children, youth and elderly, who are involved with various urban activities such as skateboarding, BMX, skating, action sports photography, recording and creating short films, graffiti, rap and other alternative music, among others.

Together with an organized group of people, the EYC MB 2013 decided that we have to move forward. At the end of August, the underpass beneath Titova Street was renovated and refreshed with graffiti and thus proclaimed the first legal graffiti wall in the city. In the middle of September, we set up a temporary skate park at the centre of the city. It currently carries out various types of urban sports and is also a great venue for alternative music concerts. On the day we established the skate park, we also organized a “skate consultation.” We introduced the present issues that Maribor urban subculture is facing to the mayor of Maribor, Andrej Fištravec, his colleagues and the general public. “I welcome the enthusiasm of skaters and bind myself that together we will create a space for this type of activities and integration among the people,” Fištravec said.

EYC MB 2013 is pleased to take over the task of helping Maribor urban subculture to an improved infrastructure and better operating conditions.
