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.

"Finding the groove and exploring you own style where gravity is the only law" Eric Haze.

PlayToon sets out to explore, document, doodle and play the cityscape of Tyneside. Over the weekend of 18th-19th May 2012 the Holy Biscuit Gallery down in Shieldfield (Newcastle, near the Wasteland) will host an event of live action, art and architectural misbehaviour.

If you skate, BMX or free run across our city this is for you to represent your world. This blog will document what we are up to, plans, progress and why this matters.

In a city that sees young people out and about as, at best, a nuisance, it is time to put yourselves on the map.
