Murals in Newhaven? Ashford Mural Festival Q&A June 12th

A presentation by Ashford Mural Festival organisers followed by a discussion about possible murals in Newhaven will take place on June 12th 18:30 - 20:00 at the Hillcrest Centre and give you an opportunity to find out what street art is, share your views on what street art you might like to see (or not see) in Newhaven, and discuss whether murals would 'brighten up' the town centre?

Chris Dixon (Ashford Arts and Cultural Industries Manager) will share Ashford Borough Council's experience of hosting UNFRAMED, Ashford’s first mural festival which officially came to an end on Sunday 16 April. The eighteen-stop, contemporary street art trail, saw the transformation of blank walls and building surfaces into high quality mural paintings and bespoke integrated artwork.

Chris' talk will be followed by an open discussion chaired by Guy McQueen (Lewes District Council - Regeneration Project Manager) about possible murals in Newhaven.

There will be light refreshments during the session. All welcome to this free event - spread the word, and don't miss out on this opportunity to shape the streetscapes of Newhaven!
