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 village fete, only more airborne

PlayToon and the PlayOut day was a gem: many thanks to all the Urban Games crew: the half pipe team North east Parkour, the Rough Diamonds and Michael and Monjer for pulling this together. The Late show crowd piled in too. Over 800 visitors through the exhibition so far, stunned and moved by the sheer quality of skater, BMX and free running graphics, video and words. Show stays open Monday and Tuesday 11-4pm.
