Street performer: Street performers create street arts performances for outdoor spaces, using space and audience as a creative resource. They create their performance through playful exploration and experimentation with the purpose of entertaining and possibly also of sharing critical opinions concerning societal issues.

It can either be scripted or spontaneous, with or without audience participation. The performance can be live or via media. Performance art can happen anywhere, in any venue or setting and for any length of time.
