deTour curated by: Unimelb, 2015

With dozens of pubs, bars and clubs within a few blocks of each other, thousands of people flock every night of the week. What most people miss though, is the art that can be found just by looking around the corner behind their favourite venues, or in some cases, inside the venue itself.
