Dunbar is set to host it’s first ever street art trail on 18th April 2015, a showcase of some of the best international street artists alongside some of Dunbar’s finest artistic talent.
Dunbar Street Art Trail is the brainchild of our very own Steven Hill, who last year worked with a local artist MiMiC Art to feature 3d pavement art outside our high street shop. The imagination it captured amongst passers by opened up an idea that would turn the high street into a showcase of the best street art on display in Scotland. Having secured funding from Dunbar Trades Association and local tourism grant he has worked tirelessly alongside Lisa Bryson of Dunbar Pop up shop to ensure the art trail features the best talent available. This project has two key themes; Firstly it has to be accessible to all and secondly it showcases Dunbar High St as a place for more than just shopping.
Here at Dunbar T-Shirt shop we are more than a simple retail unit, whether it be getting involved with the local school and their award winning enterprise activities or helping clothe a hundred people in Rwanda with our local Parish church we believe that business should be integral part of the communities they operate in. They can provide wealth, employment, social interaction and growth to towns. We are proud to be the creator of such a fantastic project.
The art trail will feature the likes of ELPH and Chris Young alongside musical talents of Stagger Rats Callum Easter and Graeme Cairns. With a BMX display team and a street fashion display there will be more urban culture on display than in most cities. Dunbar T-Shirt Shop will feature the artistic talents of MiMiC art on the day with a hugely exciting new project they have been working on that perfectly captures their amazingly diverse artistic talents.
Dunbar Street Art trail will hopefully spur on a whole host of more accessible artistic projects and @ Dunbar t-shirt shop we always enjoy working with local artists on creative project from merchandise to t-shirt designs. We look forward to seeing you there! You can keep up to date with events on the facebook event page and remember to sign up to the workshops from Liz Lochhead (Scotland’s National Poet) and others early to avoid disappointment.
