Cooks Hill Street Art Walking Tour
September 9, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm$11.24 - $21.49
Street Art Walking leads you through the streets of Newcastle sharing stories about the artworks, how they came to be, about the artists behind the murals, techniques used to create them and the key part Street Art Walking has had in the burgeoning street art scene of Newcastle, Australia.
As Simone takes you along the SAW history you will discover Newcastle with new eyes as your guide shares knowledge of Newcastle’s public art, placemaking and street art.
We will wander around Cooks Hill back alleys seeking out street art and other unique features within this special suburb of Newcastle.
The guided walking tour will go for 90 minutes.
