A STREET ART CELEBRATION ON INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR MONUMENTS AND SITES
Portsmouth’s Sustainable Conservation Trust will celebrate their official launch on the 18th of April (ICOMOS International Day for Monuments and Sites) with the Spray and Save Street Art Festival at The Hotwalls Studios in Old Portsmouth. With a theme of “greater inclusion and recognition of diversity”, talented local artists have donated their time to produce art, some of which will be auctioned afterward for local good causes.
Drop by throughout the day to see street artists Samo, Midge, Fark, Roo Abrook and M-One at work at Hotwalls Studios, which itself is a great example of a community-based project born from the adaptive reuse of disused military fortifications, which have been transformed into an award-winning cultural and creative arts hub.
Sustainable Conservation Trust is a not-for-profit organisation utilising a skills network that aims to bring redundant heritage assets into sustainable use, provide training in the heritage sector and promote culture-led urban renewal and economic growth, helping projects such as The Hotwalls Studios happen.
Strong Island will be vising at taking photos plus you will be able to catch photos and live streams of the street art happening via their Instagram: @sustain_conserve_trust and find out more about the trust at: www.sustainableconservationtrust.com
