Event Details

Calling street art lovers and sceptics alike,

Interested in the urban environment? Intrigued by how street artists change our cities? Want to challenge your ideas about public art, graffiti and vandalism?

If you want to discover more of London and are curious about what makes good quality street art, then these free, expert-led street art workshops could be for you.

Five workshops will take place across London to explore street art, tags, posters, stencils, sculptures and graffiti. Each workshop has two stages – in the first stage, you’ll take photographs (you’ll need to bring your own digital camera, a camera phone is fine) and we’ll visit a street art site and explore – what do you think adds value? What do you think is detrimental? Why? In the second stage, one week later, we’ll meet somewhere warm, have a complimentary drink, and debate and discuss what you’ve seen. We’ll be joined by one of the top experts in London street art who’ll give us a tour of the area and offer some of their best insights.

Workshop 2 will take place in Brick Lane on Saturday, Nov 2nd, 11am-1pm and Saturday, Nov 9th, 11am-1pm and you will need to be free for both dates in order to participate. Meeting point is Whitechapel Art Gallery (exit of Aldgate East tube station).

The Street Art and Graffiti Workshops are a public engagement project funded by the Public Engagement Unit at University College London. They are part of a wider PhD research on the impact of street art and graffiti on different urban spaces. By taking part in the workshops, you are going to contribute to defining a distinction between the desirable, valuable street art and the poor, unappealing marks on city surfaces.

This workshop will be run in collaboration with Lee Bofkin.

Dr. Lee Bofkin is the co-founder of Global Street Art, the largest online street art photo archive in the World. Global Street Art also organises the Walls Project which has sourced permission for over 300 street art murals since 2012. He's a snappy dresser too.
