Huge thank you to Umpel for all his dedication and commitment to making great art, following deadlines and having fun whilst working. It’s an honour to work with artists like Umpel and my work as an organiser wouldn’t be possible without the artistic talent and drive. Keep dreaming big and I’ll keep pitching the ideas!
I had a great night, representing Create, Innovate Gosford City, mingling with some great people within the Creative Industries of Australia, as well as key government staff, that can make such a difference to arts and culture.
There were live paste-ups happening whilst The Lord Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore MP, addressed the floor. It’s excellent to see businesses, council and the like, championing the use of empty spaces for creative industries.
I feel very privileged to be part of a unique Contemporary Australian art scene that is right at the fringe of the artist world. I’m not into white walls. I respect high art institutions, to a degree. Yet, it is within the low (or no) budget, where upon my heart shall remain.
The Theatre Lane (paste-up) Project
Continuing the Hunter’s leading, and most ambitious Public Art Program, Pride of Place is seeking to undertake a first in contemporary art. In collaboration with Street Art Walking (SAW), there will be a six month ‘paste-up’ project ran in Theatre Lane, Newcastle (Australia).
International, National, and local artists have submitted theatre poster inspired designs online via email and the works are hen pasted up by Project Manager, Simone Sheridan.

OVERVIEW: Paper artworks inspired by theatre posters with a focus on older styles to compliment the vinyl artwork on the Victoria Theatre. The posters are to be installed on both sides of the lane way, capturing the feel of a rich history of theatre that the area is famous for.
The following examples of theatre posters indicate the potential style and scope the project could have. The poster’s content can vary from black and white to full colour, a mix of text, images and an array of fonts. The sizes can vary from small handbill sizes, to large A1.
