The Busking Project is doing a latitudinal study examining to what extent busking affects the way people experience and connect to public urban environments, and what policies cities around the world employ to encourage and foster a vibrant artistic community.
Their aim is to engender a positive, healthy cultural environment in city centres worldwide. They will make our research available, giving buskers, civil rights and art organisations the tools they need to defend their right to sing, dance and play in the street.
This would be “free” work. TPB will promote you as you wish, write references, whatever you ask. But they can’t afford to pay you. Tell them: what would be useful for you?
The Busking Project is combining this research with a public awareness campaign. Through a variety of platforms and mediums (documentary, books, website, phone app and live events), they’re publicising and celebrating street performance. They’re also offering buskers support, advice and a place to network with others in the field.
