PlayToon opening event will be 19th May, Holy Biscuit Gallery, Shieldfield, (Newcastle), with follow up exhibition throughout the week after. Opening event will feature half pipe and parkour frame from Urban Games team, plus DJs, along with videos, photography, zines, atlases, cartoons, animations.
At the heart of this is representing your worlds to the city. Many street sports folk are already expert photographers, film-makers and cartoonists. We would like to include work from as many as possible In particular a shout out to those of you just starting out. You may think your photos are not as good as the best. So what, it is your world not theirs. Maybe you'd like to just send in a photo of yourself or your mates for a massive gallery of Tyneside's skaters, BMXers and free runners. That is just as welcome. So, we will use this blog to tell you what is going on, how to get in touch and get involved. There is also a Facebook group (search for PlayToon2012) and soon a Flickr group for more images. Mike
