The Beauty of Buskers

From magicians to break dancers to “statues,” cities everywhere are filled with buskers – another word for street performers. However, these entertainers provide more than just a show. Buskers create crowds, get strangers to make eye contact and create shared cultural experiences.

Buskers are increasingly being recognized for helping to create place within our cities. These performers add local flavor to a city, don’t require extra infrastructure or funds, are popular with tourists and present self-contained, unique shows.

Next time you see Baton Bob dazzling on Peachtree Street, thank that local celebrity for helping our city become a better place.
