Street Art

You are here



The shutdown of The Street with the City West precinct, reduced to an urban desert during the COVID pandemic, was devastating. The emptiness, devoid of people, expressed our loss and state of crisis.

The Street in partnership with City Renewal Authority has commissioned internationally acclaimed Canberra-grown artist Luke Cornish (E.L.K) to examine and respond that shared experience. To create for a public environment a street art project expressing the journey of theatre over this time of global uncertainty and to go to the core of what connects us as humans.

Look out for more news about this project being updated on the prezi regularly!
