Abstract

Taking as a case the art-led regeneration of the derelict district of Lakkos in Heraklion town (Crete), the purpose of this exploratory study is to add to the knowledge of travelling artists’ typology by offering a rich contextual analysis of the mural images they produced and giving priority to their views. It adopts three data collection methods, photographic documentation (25 mural images), observations, and asynchronous email interviews with 21 traveling artists. By applying a typology in the main theme of each mural and by using travelling artists’ narratives three main groups of traveling artists emerged, namely heritage-engaged, place-engaged and social-engaged artists. The data collected are discussed in relation to the problems accrued from the gentrification of Lakkos through mural-based development.
