Dos Mundos Arts: Street Art + Flash Mob = Wallpeople!
Born in Barcelona and now found in 25 cities around the world, Wall People is a global street art ‘happening’ that encourages participants to create and interact with their urban surroundings.
This year, the City of Toronto joins the global network of people from around the globe who at a designated time and place will collaborate to redecorate public space.
How does it work?
• On Saturday June 9, 2012, go to the specified place and bring with you your creation or creations.
• All kind of works and techniques are accepted: drawing, painting, engraving, illustrations, photography, collage, comic; crafts with paper, cardboard, light wood, canvas, crochet, napkins, Post-it notes; mixed compositions, badges, handicraft postcards, origami, poems…
• Size and shape are free, but giant works won’t be accepted (1 x 1 m.)
• Time of the creation and length of the showing will be announced on Facebook, but it is an ephemeral action, so it will last about two hours.
• Organization will have double-sided tape to stick the pictures of the participants. However, we strongly recommend you to bring glue or Scotch tape.
• Stick your work beside the previous one, spaced by a little space. Please, respect the rest of creations.
• Once the mural is finished and it has been shown, the organization will indicate the end of the event.
• At that moment, you can get your creation back.
• If you want, you can exchange your work with other participant, and turn the event into a more interactive experience.
