> Can graffiti be managed smarter in Europe?
> How could we best share knowledge and equip communities to design more community-aware and resource-efficient approaches that are really 'fit for purpose' and context? 
> How might responses and actions related to graffiti and graffiti vandalism help to better promote the ‘pro-social’ as well mitigate ‘anti-social’?
> How will we know which communities are actually affected by a particular instance of graffiti and which are best served by strident crime prevention approaches to managing graffiti and street art?
Hosted by the Design Against Crime Research Centre (DACRC) at UAL, in collaboration with SYNYO (Vienna), Sine (Munich) and Eticas (Barcelona), ‘The Good the Bad and the Beautiful’ event looks to move forward some of these questions and invites you to trial the new European Graffolution platform and experience our experimental Human Graffiti Library event.
