UrbanCanvas news #1

Anybody reading this blog recently would be forgiven into thinking that they’d tuned into the Harthill Copse moan and groan society. People who know me will know there is more to me than…..I just won’t say it 😉

Balloon paint bombing!

Paint bombing- Merseyside Youth Games 2008

I thought it about time to update you all on our recent adventures in the universe of visual arts! Our long hoped for trip to Japan for this spring never materialised….overseas gigs by their very nature are always unpredictable. As you may know we hoped to spend two weeks producing street art for a major festival in Tokyo, it’s the second time they’ve enquired and the second time it’s fell through so they are obviously keen so maybe it’s a case of third time lucky? 😉

As usual we’ve had our fair share of enquires from the middle east…mainly Dubai, Qatar and Bahrain but these are often very fickle in nature so we very rarely take them seriously…..but it’s still great that people are thinking about us from further afield. We are planning our first ever publicity drive to festivals and events worldwide so that should bear some fruits. We never publicise ourselves so it should be interesting to see what, if anything happens!

We have some exciting new projects planned for Liverpool including the second James Carling Pavement Art competition and work with the Liverpool Central BID team that should create work opportunities for local artists. Further afield we hope to be taking part in a national major Girl Guides event in Leeds and an exciting event linked to the ancient Wiltshire chalk landscape drawings to be held in Salisbury…..but I’ll tell you more about that in my next news update 😉
