This is Street Art Walking (SAW).
SAW wants the city to come alive with artworks, dispersed throughout the streets, creating a public art walk for all to enjoy, locals and tourists.
Our main goal is to bring back a sense of pride within our streets, while showcasing artistic talent.
This project has stemmed from a visual arts project called ‘walkARTbout’ developed as part of 2010 This Is Not Art Festival. The success of the project has resulted in securing a number of public art sites on a permanent basis.
SAW is a place-making project creating (temporary and permanent) public art spaces. We aim to enhance the current aesthetics of the city by creating positive art solutions to public spaces.
SAW is supported by The Octapod Association and Renew Newcastle.
