Street Art Tour at Seven Seeds Coffee
Seven Seeds Coffee is great, but that hip little restaurant can really fill up on a weekend morning. While your waiting it's a great time to step out into the alley and look at some original, hip art works.
This tour is designed to be viewed while you wait for a table at Seven Seeds Coffee. The spirit of this tour is to encourage using the activity of observing street art to fill up time which is otherwise unused and mundane. I believe that when street art acts as a tool to interrupt our daily activities (such as waiting in lines), it helps shift our social perspective on urban space. Each piece is different in theme and technique, making it a good conversation point. I believe the variation in skill in the artwork may help encourage the creation of more art in this same space. Additionally, I find this tour to fit into the hipster coffee culture that Melbourne thrives on. I find that most hipsters enjoy being the first on "the know" of the cool new scene. One day this alleyway may be a laneway, and by participating in this tour you can tell all your other hip friends that you were certainly "here first".
