2-Hour Walking Tour
This tour explores the range of public art, both permanent and ephemeral that has used the City as its stage. Public space and the public art that inhabits it are in constant conversation. We will explore a range of sculptural and painted pieces and ask what role art should play as mouthpiece and in the inner city. In understanding the processes and intended meanings of work on display, this walk seeks to highlight the often tenuous relationship between government and free speech in creative industries. Participants will be given chance to respond in a unique public art intervention en route.
