Lata65 was founded by 36-year-old architect, Lara Seixo Rodrigues. "Each year we ran the festival I noticed it was the older people, not the younger ones, who were really engaged," she says.



And don't worry! These grannies aren't getting arrested any time soon. The walls they are provided to paint are supplied by Lisbon City Council's Galeria d Arte Urbana.
