Last week I was sent to help out on a Bristol City Council project that transformed the face of one of Bristol's drabbest streets.
See No Evil brought together a cross-section of the international Street Art community to 'paint one whole street horizontically and vertically over the space of a week'. Nelson Street is full of concrete buildings that made perfect canvases, and previously redundant walk-ways now provide viewing platforms.
I was helping the council coordinate the event volunteers, who were there to speak to passers-by about what was going on, and guide people away from traffic whilst they gazed up at the progress. It was fantastic experience, and a great look into the workings of a large-scale event.
The media coverage for the event has been phenomenal, reaching national and international publications and broadcasters. Here is just a small selection of what's online.. BBC, Metro, Visit Bristol, Don't Panic.
