Wallpeople is a collaborative art event that happens in 45 cities around the world at the same time. A street wall will become a makeshift outdoor gallery, where all participants may exhibit their own works and collaborate to create an improvised open-air museum.
This year, Sydney joins the global network of creatives for the first time, and invites all city artists & creative enthusiasts alike to join us on the 1st of June in Newtown.
Created in Barcelona in 2009, Wallpeople invites people to create and be part of a unique happening in an urban space, thus making an ephemeral street artwork.
