Wonderwalls 2017 - WOLLONGONG
Dates: Friday 24 - Sunday 26 November
Wollongong Central are proud to again be a sponsor of the WONDERWALLS FESTIVAL. Building facades, underground parking stations and concrete walls in Wollongong Central and through out the city will be transformed into colourful street murals as part of Wonderwalls, a three-day street art festival in Wollongong that aims to reshape and redefine the city.
Established in 2012, Wonderwalls has converted Wollongong’s central business district into a vibrant creative community. This year’s festival will be bigger and better than ever, with leading local, national, and international street artists including Ian McCallum
(Queensland), Claire Foxton
(Kiama), Owen Dippie
(New Zealand), and Leans
(Brisbane) showcasing their talent live for all to witness. The walls being painted will be significantly larger than past years, with most reaching more than 10m in height and 20m long.
In addition to street art, Wonderwalls will also host inclusive community events including public discussions with the artists, an exhibition hosted by Ironlak Art & Design, and street parties hosted by the celebrated hip-hop collective One Dayers (Horrorshow/Spit Syndicate) who will be presenting one of their renowned day parties, One Day Sundays.
Make sure you swing past the 'Wonderwalls Hub', which will be located in a shipping container in upper Crown Street Mall. You'll be able to create your own digital Wonderwalls Mural with a virtual reality headset! Plus get info on all the locations of this year's murals and events.
