West End Street Art Festival 2017

What does community mean to you? Is it your local neighbourhood, a group of like-minded friends, or maybe even your social media followers?

Jenna Williams and Ihab Imam are helping to define how we interact with public space and are inviting everyone to join in!

The West End Street Art Festival (WESAF) has brought together a diverse group of creatives, with the goal of adding to the lively mix that is Brisbane’s West End. The festival extends to street art sites along Boundary Street and Russell Streets, and the mural works will remain after the festival is over, becoming part of the local fabric.

The festival’s aims are ambitious, they want to support local artists and businesses, all the while raising funds for Orange Sky Laundry. Orange Sky Laundry is a charity that helps homeless youths by providing a free clothes washing service.

The festival wraps up on Sunday 22 October 2017, we hope that WESAF will be back with more community action next year!
