Our Mission

Street Wisdom is the brainchild of David Pearl, an innovator in business, the arts and social change.  Having spent years exploring how our urban environment can deliver fresh insight, in 2013 he set up the first Street Wisdom event with the help of fellow creative mischief-maker Chris Baréz-Brown

Since then, the movement has grown to 73 countries and counting, led by volunteers sharing the power of Street Wisdom free of charge through communities across the globe.
