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.

"A thousand furlongs of sea....

...... for an acre of barren ground". Shakespeare's skaters? Perhaps with the new graff at Bridges, although Gateshead Council's Construction Services are worried because some of the graff is wthin 5m of the road which means they have to do something about it.... even though one of their staff has a nostalgic glint in his eye for skating. Meantime here is another view of Bridges from the PlayToon show.
