The stand out opportunity will undoubtedly be the supervised Street Art Graffiti Workshop, led by respected local artist Damon Moroney from Iknograffix.

All youth participants under the age of 18 will need their parents to sign a consent form on the day, and children under 12 need to be accompanied by a parent/guardian during the workshop. Bookings are essential.

Urban art is increasingly popular, particularly with our youth. Since the Graffiti Art boom in the 80’s, creative artists around the globe have added colour to city streets, beautifying empty spaces with their own expressive decorative imagery.

Tiny-tots won’t miss out either, with a supervised doodle space available for them to experiment with their own form of non-toxic child friendly graffiti.

Street Artz Fest will embrace the process behind the spray cans and stencils and provide a safe place for young artists to learn and/or hone their art under the guidance of professional art mentors. They will produce their own Street Art and their work will be on exhibit during the festival. All participants in this workshop will get professional photos of their artwork on completion.

Other exciting daytime activities on offer include; Drumming Workshops, UV Body Paint/Glitter Station, Tie Dye Art Workshop, fun at the fair carnival style games with prizes and a large variety of food/retail markets.

A full event schedule will be published in the lead up to the event. Whether you are into participating in workshops or just want to observe, there is something for everyone!
