Host the Unlock Book Fair in your city and give your local audience access to the fair’s unique wealth of cutting-edge graffiti publications and to its outstanding graffiti-related public programme.
The Unlock Book Fair is always a highlight for local cultural scenes. It draws an international crowd of cultural tourists to the city, and transforms it for a weekend into the epicenter of the graffiti world.
The Tag Conference was created by the Unlock Book Fair team as the much-needed space for a serious study of tagging.
The Unlock Book Fair and the Tag Conference are both produced by the Unlock team, but they are separate events with different focus and programs. They usually take place on consecutive days to create the perfect week for graffiti enthusiasts.
An Unlock Guest Programme is a scaled-down version of the public programme of the Unlock Book Fair. The stage is a key feature at the fair, and is famed for its special speakers and unique insights into graffiti and related cultures.
Unlock Guest Programmes are designed to be featured as part of a larger culture program developed by a host event or institution. They can include book launches, lectures, panel discussions, readings, screenings and live acts.
If you want to provide your audience with a slice of the action taking place at the stage of the Unlock Book Fair, we can work with you on the conceptualisation and development of an Unlock Guest Programme tailored to the focus of your culture program.
The Unlock Showcase is a travelling bookstore featuring graffiti-related publications selected at the Unlock Book Fair. It pops-up at museums, universities and festivals.
Complete the visitor experience at your event with our pop-up bookstore, offering a select range of specialised titles about graffiti and about related themes such as urban exploration, hobo culture, historical wall-writing, street photography and street art.
