Large wall 2017

Vibrance Festival 2017

Vibrance Festival is a street art festival and was held over the weekend of the 25th and 26th of March, 2017. 

Vibrance commissioned 8 Tasmanian street artists to paint over 300m2 of wall in the heart of Hobart. The site of the largest wall was transformed into a buzzing festival complete with music high quality Tasmanian food and beverages, street skating demonstrations from Jimmy’s Skate and Street, and a public wall for people of all ages to have a go working with spray paint in a safe and controlled environment.

Vibrance Festival was run as part of the HCC’s Creative Hobart and Urban Art Walls Project.
