It’s the Shire’s answer to ‘Sculptures by the Sea’ as 35 street artists are let loose on the buildings and laneways of Cronulla.  Over 40 streets will come to life in as the assembled crew including; Tim ‘Phibs’, Ox King, Minna Leunig, Mulga, Alex Le Hours, Shannon Crees, Thomas Jackson, Elliott ‘Numskull’ Routledge are given free reign.

From sculpturing to murals, wall bombing, rollers, stencils, intentional drips, burners, wildstryle letter / symbol interlocks and visual shorthands and all things in between are given the green light in a $75,000 Crime Prevention grant jointly funded by Sutherland Shire Council and the NSW Government.  It’s to reduce vandalism in the area while allowing artists to take flight at maximum potential on a canvas that happens to be one of the most iconic cities in the world.

 The 2019 Walk The Walls festival will coincide with Australian Music week, with a free community concert in Dunningham Park and musical activations taking place in various venues across Cronulla.

The walls start coming to life from Friday 8th November.
