The fourth edition of the Street Arts Winter Academy was held in Maribor, Slovenia between 6 and 8 March 2015 and gathered European professionals, academics and students to decide upon
a way forward for the Education and Training in Street Arts.

In this publication, Circostrada Network offers a synthesis of the conference proceedings that included a further exchange of methods and approaches to ETSA and led to the ratification of SAWA into a new organisation called EFETSA, the European Federation for Education and Training in Street Arts.
