Three Walls Set To Go 

Publish Date: 8 November 2019

Three Walls

Creativity is set to come alive on the streets of Charlton later this month with the ‘Three Walls’ project to activate three public art spaces.

Funded by the Federal Government’s Drought Communities Programme, the project aims to increase tourism activity and provide more opportunities for a socially inclusive environment through visual art.

Kicking off on Friday 22 November and running through until Sunday 24 November the program includes workshops, a guided street art tour and exhibitions which will all take place around the finalisation of three significant pieces of street art.

The street artists commissioned to deliver these projects are Jack Fran, Kate Pullen and Kyle Torney (who was selected by an Expression of Interest process as the local artist to take part in the project and display his wares).

Their designs have been informed by the community through a consultation process with the artist to present their drafts to both the Project Working Group and local business owners, whose walls will adorn the completed artwork, in coming days.

Curated by Reece Hendy, also known as Nacho Station, ‘Three Walls’ will run in complement to the OK Motels event in Charlton, setting up a not to be missed weekend.

“What a big weekend Charlton has in store. The legacy of this great project, the three pieces of street art, will be central to an overall art trail in Charlton. The community has been very active and clear in their planning for art in the town and to see these first installations be realised will give this vision great momentum”, said Mayor Cr Carolyn Stewart.
