Youth Art Project - Banna Lane Festival

Want to have your artwork in the Banna Lane Public Art Festival?

Griffith Regional Art Gallery is seeking talented and committed young artists to be part of a unique public art event - working alongside high profile street artists creating large scale arts works in Banna Lane between 8th and 12th May.

How can I get involved?

Iron Lak street artist Cooper Crothers is coming to Griffith to work with young local artists painting the large electricity transformers along Banna Lane during the festival.

Cooper is an inspiring young artist who began his public art career while still at school. Spearheading community art projects for other young people, Cooper brought experienced street artists to his home town to run youth workshops. His heroes from Iron Lak were so impressed with his skill and initiative they signed him up with the Iron Lak crew. Cooper now works full time with Iron Lak and loves mentoring other aspiring young artists.

Cooper will run an intensive aerosol art skills workshop on Good Friday for committed artists aged 14-25 years - teaching safe and creative aerosol art techniques, and creating vibrant and original designs to be incorporated into the painted works. He will return to lead his young crew in painting the transformers during the festival. 

Artists wanting to be part of this project must commit to attending the Workshop and be available for painting onsite during the festival.

To apply to be a part of this project, download and fill in the APPLICATION FORM and return to the Gallery by 10 April 2019.

Time: 10am to 2pm
