“Building A Community Of Collective Creativity”
My friend and I decided to check out an event I’d seen advertised named Street Fest, it featured a large skate ramp in a warehouse off Old Street with artists such as Sichi, Andy Seize, Hicks,Miss Led and Drunkpark, live DJ’s with yummy international food stalls surrounding it.
I got a bit distracted at first from the skateboarders (..stunts) but then walk to the back and out come these artists drawing away. Amazing pieces of work, they also had timed ‘paint off’ against each other. Such a good little fest, they showed films in the back rooms by up and coming film makers, skateboard competitions and fashion shows. Watch out for the next one next year!
