Save the date for this year's Whitecross Street party! Saturday 16th July 2016 from 12 midday to 6pm. The lively art event and two month exhibition - 'The Rise of the Nonconformists' - is a collaboration between St Luke’s Community Centre and artist Teddy Baden, with the support of the London Borough of Islington. It is one of London’s most unique creative experiences with that rare cocktail which can only be mustered up with interactive community spirits, mixed with a sensational splash of urban art and a large dash of the unexpected. It’s a brilliant family-friendly event for both the avid art lover and those that like something a bit different. The events and artists for 2016 will be announced soon. A list of last year’s artists for the exhibition, can be found on the exhibition page.
The Rise of the Nonconformists is a an unusual exhibition which pushes the boundaries of most social norms and expectations. At previous shows we’ve had a comic-book ton weight anvil floating in the sky; a monster-sized pencil scribbling on buildings; and a sniper hiding in a fake window. Some of the most intriguing and important urban artists have been free to rise to the occasion in the environment they best excel in – the street.
