Street Art Walking has been invited to quote provide artists as entertainment for an event. The festival is held on 8 October from 11:00 until 18:00 with theme of “Art of Communication”. It’s free for community to attend and ran by council.
SAW is keen to hear from artists who can do live art in front of people. They particularly want to offer an interactive experience so artists that can work with people and facilitate group work would also be great.
- Portrait drawing or painting
- Live art workshops
- Interactive Sculpture
There are three live art elements:
- artists live drawing/painting
- idea for a interactive sculpture
- sensory walk in a marquee
- Are you interested to share your idea or learn more?
- Have you created live art for events before?
- Can you facilitate some interactive art?
Key event info:
Date: Sunday 8 October
Time: 11am until 6pm (you will need to arrive earlier to set up before open at 11)
If you can paint all day great! But if you only want to paint for 4 hours, that’s okay too. Outline what time you can be available when you send us your EOI.
Email us (as soon as you can!) with an outline of your idea, examples of work, the duration of your live art performance and what your fee will be. Please include all costs or outline anything else you will require to complete the job.
Street Art Walking meet with a very friendly and knowledgable New York based street art enthusiast, David, from Street Art Walk for a personal tour around Brooklyn and Williamsburg. You must visit this website, get onto the twitter and instagram. You will not be disappointed. Same goes for Vandalog.
We were also lucky to have Luke from Vandalog which was a great match up for all parties. SAW came away from this convergence of like-minded people with so much new information, it’s so fantastic!
We’ve fallen even MORE in love with all things graffiti and street art, in a big way!
As you might know SAW is a Newcastle based project with the aim of creating more art on more walls. Seeing the amount of amazing work; stickers, paste ups, throw ups, full pieces, hand drawn/painted and so much more.
The tags are amazing and plentiful, which makes it so much better than anything SAW has seen in Newcastle. There seems to be a noted respect for buildings that are ‘unmarked’. There’s a really nice flow and coordination of works.
And the stickers. Oh. My. The stickers.
Here’s some pics while we digest all the sick works we saw (hehe) today.
