Feeling like the town or city you reside in just doesn’t UNDERSTAND you and your artistic endeavors? I knoooow…that feeling SUCKS. Feeling as if there aren’t many project/job opportunities for your field of study? I knoooow…that is BORING.

World (near and far):
It might be part of the People’s Republic of China, but you’re basically in a whole other world when you step off the ferry from Hong Kong. Casino is king here, and visitors think nothing of blanketing an entire hotel room in stingray, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that there’s a strong art community brewing under the surface of mother-of-pearl inlaid tiles and solid gold furnishings. Tiny, but growing, San Lazaro is a hilltop community bursting with creativity: from the once-military-now-hip boutique hotel to Creative Macau, a project that aims to foster new talent from film to graphic design to visual art. And Lines Lab, who believes in people as much as the art they make, is attracting new creators to the city every day with their Design and Fashion lab.
Step back from the bikini: Brazil’s most creative neighborhood is far from the beaches of Rio, in loud and brash São Paulo, South America’s answer for New York City. And you can expect one thing from this loud, raw urban metropolis — a lot of really colorful, politically-charged street art. Large neon pieces of work show up everywhere from dilapidated buildings to enormous billboards, and in the ultimate nod to creativity, esteemed museum MuBE, the Brazilian Museum of Sculpture, hosted actual gallery space for some of São Paulo’s most well-known graffiti artists to promote their work. Unlike certain places, this is a city that fosters young talent.
