Xplore playToon

Tyneside is one big playground and PlayToon 2012 is out to represent skaters, BMXers and free-runners over the weekend of 18th-19th May 2012.
Urban Games, Digital Deekies, 4-Sight, Northumbria Uni and Streetphire have hooked up with the Holy Biscuit Gallery in Shieldfield to organise the venue, exhibtion and action. We will be showing photography, video, cartoons and maps from local street sports scenes with ramps and space for live action. Maybe you are only starting out or have a stash of photos from back in the day: PlayToon is there to show off your world, roots and culture.
This blog will keep you posted on what we are up to, how to get involved and explore the place of street sports in the city.

Cartooning & skate chat, Native, Saturday 21st Jan

We will be in Native on Saturday 21st if you fancy telling tall tales from your skating days around Tyneside. i'll have a little digi-recorder so you can chat away to your hearts content, whatever is important to you about the skate scene. Or maybe just which is your favourite Greggs pasty. All skaters are welcome to join in, and doodle some cartoons of yourselves, your mates and your adventures. Mike J
