During his speech at the opening ceremony of the festival, the curator of Mural Fest Tirana, Helidon Haliti, said that the special feature of this year is that there will be more women artists participating and there will be three works dedicated to youth.

"Mural Fest started 5 years ago, realized by Dekor Tirana, bringing together artists from all over the world. The innovation of the Municipality of Tirana is that there is a group which has artists inside, who paint daily. They know the walls of Tirana and paint things every day. The door of Mural Fest is open to all students and art enthusiasts, not only in Albania, but around the world. The workshop will be 3 days. It was initiated by Dekor Tirana and the National Youth Congress. I congratulate the Congress because it has brought many activities to Albania. This year we have two great artists, such as Noe from Uruguay. This year we have four female artists, with my insistence a girl from Kosovo is also coming, Emona 21 years old who has made several walls in Kosovo. Also comes Zana from America, Pablo from Spain, or Bogdani from Romania."
The director of the National Youth Congress, Dafina Peci, said that she is happy that the Congress has joined this year's Mural Fest, within the framework of the title "Tirana, European Youth Capital 2022" and that she hopes that in the coming years this initiative will be developed in other cities of Albania.

"We have come with Tirana Art, as an initiative that aims to bring this festival of murals to the new generations through capacity building, but also the opportunity they are given to represent the work around the city. I am convinced that we will give young people more space and opportunities and we will make it possible to preserve and promote this good tradition in other cities of Albania in the coming years as well", said Peci.
