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 Wake fan club

Newcastle's Wasteland has gained a hard core fan club holding a wake as the machines creep up to the edge of the plaza. The spot has been BMXed (and a little bit skated and scooted) everyday over last week or two by an affectionate crowd of friends determined not to let the Wasteland go unloved and un-mourned. There if even some new graff, a sort of love letter, a fond farewell to concrete, trash and hanging out. A sentimental bunch of hoodies.
