HIT THE STREETS
STONNINGTON, MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA
Just Another and the City of Stonnington implemented Hit the Streets, a graffiti education and prevention project aimed to provide opportunities for young people to develop and showcase their aerosol art skills in a legal environment.
The project connected Just Another’s prolific graffiti artists Dvate and Sear to educate participants in letter form, style, technique, composition, and colour theory. The artists provided guidance and insight into the commercial world within the creative industry and mentored them as they took their concept from idea to a fully executed mural.
The educational element of the project encouraged participants from the ages of 12 to 21 to engage positively in the medium and helped reduce and prevent graffiti vandalism in targeted areas of the city.
The program concluded with two full murals and a group exhibition at the Just Another Project Space showcasing photos and designs created over the course of the project.
