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.

"covered in dead birds... dead birds everywhere..."

Not Exhibition Park, but one the Toon's most mysterious and ominous spots, according to Bish. And nothing to do with microscooter rotor-blade tricks either. Here is Exi in the sunshine today; skate, BMX and micros. Not got any videos or photos in from micro-scooter kids yet, so if you are out there and reading this check out Feb 23rd entry for info on getting your pictures in the PlayToon exhibition and event.
