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.

"i know where we are going, but i don't know where it is..."

Which is why maps are useful, although maps of roads and streets are not as good as maps of loves and hates. So we have started redrawing the Tourist Information map of Newcastle, doodling skate spots, who goes where and places that matter. The felt tip pens were out in Native today and we'll be doing some more in other places, plus you can always send in your own versions, cut up, scrambled and re-arranged as much as you like. I think the Tourist Info office would benefit from a few copies. This map is Lewis, Lewis and Ryans' day out, once Lewis had put the trucks on the new board, plus a bit of Johnny H, although his mind was wandering from having to choose between cakes.
