ALL FRESCO A Krd Street Art Festival.

Third year this event has been held here’s a video and bit of info check it out ….

All Fresco is both a response to the traditions of Krd, and to the

paucity of street art in the Krd district. The character of a community
is reflected in many things including the evidence of an engaged and
ongoing public dialogue. And in an area noted for it’s character,
a distinct lack of sites hosting relevant and revolving street art is
something to be addressed.

The value of this event isn’t just in the opportunity it provides to
artists, or even the spectacle and experience it offers spectators.
It’s in re-establishing and re-affirming the qualities of a part of our
city that makes it the most well know, most notorious and fabled
strip in the country.

Society has become increasingly dependant on social media as a means of both communication and self promotion.
George Orwell and Albert Einstein both predicted this day would come……….Text, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram have become the norm for displaying social interactions and intimate moments for the world to see and make comment on.
It has not happened unless its on social media.
