Benalla Wall to Wall Festival 2016 - Pozible crowdfunding campaign

ANP | 17-Feb-2016
The story of the project - Benalla Street Art need your help to follow up on the success of the 2015 inaugural Benalla Wall to Wall Street Art Festival! We are a small group of like-minded art loving locals from Benalla, a small rural city of 14,000 located 2 hours north of Melbourne on the Broken River in the High Country of NE Victoria. @pozible #pozible #crowdfunding
We came together in 2015 with a vision and belief that we could bring Street Artists from around the world to paint murals on bare walls, some over 3 stories high, over a weekend in March 2015. Victoria's first Regional Urban Contemporary Street Art Festival called Wall to Wall was born. The event was funded through canvassing local residents and local business who donated over $20,000. The generosity and vision of the locals paid off.

We commissioned ex-local resident Shaun Hossack & Juddy Roller Studios to bring together a collective of home grown and international street artists to transform our town.

The weekend saw thousands of locals and 'out-of-towners' tour the various murals to watch the artwork appear in front of their eyes. The excitement, the buzz, the interest and the spirit of it all was tangible. The results are truly amazing and speak for themselves. 14 high quality colourful murals created by world reknowned street artists adorn once featureless walls. In November 2015 a piece by Adnate, was voted 8th best in the world earning international acclaim! Recognition that put Benalla firmly on the map as a Street Art destination - and that's cool! So cool in fact that we want to do it again this year.

Since the last festival we've been working really hard behind the scenes, finding walls, finding artists and finding the money to stage the event. As with any project there are challenges and we've had our fair share to overcome.
