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.

"At Solicitors a man started on us.....

....having a go, 'do you think this is some sort of playground?' He looked like he would hit us" (Carl). "Yes, i do" (Phil). North East Parkour out experimenting with the city on a Saturday, "the government tell us off for doing this because they're not earning anything from it... but when they're out drinking they're earning a percentage" (Jamie). Looks like a new city centre plan is needed
