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.

Wasteland hanging in

Newcastle's Wasteland (Classic long summer days spot) has seen major levelling and earth moving over last few days with skaters getting chucked out during the day. Does not look like it will be much longer before plaza gets hit.... but as dusk fell, hottest day of the year so far 20+ skaters and BMXers reclaimed this magical space
