Melbourne City Laneways Tour
Having lived in the CBD for a year and half now, I'm ashamed to admit that I never really gave graffiti and street art a second glance. With my enrolment in a street art subject at University, I have realised just how surrounded I am by amazing pieces of art, legal or not. Now I want everyone to see whats hidden around that next corner, or in that alleyway they're about to walk past without thinking twice about it.
This tour aims to highlight some of the more well known lanes of the Melbourne CBD, exploring the massive part that street art and graffiti play in making up Melbourne's personality, and looking at how, due to the constant commercialization of graffiti culture, we may be becoming desensitized to it, ignoring this incredible patchwork of art that is Melbourne.
