Flickr member BeautifullyUrban is organsing a cancer charity auction this summer to be held at the Leonard Street Gallery in London. "Cancer Sell" is raising funds primarily from the contribution of art works donated by various artists
Two guys with no artistic talent, HowAboutNo and NoLionsInEngland, both of whom have a penchant for clocking street art, will do their bit for this good cause by organising a graffiti tour of the streets around Shoreditch, Hackney, Brick Lane and various dubious but possibly interesting spots in between.
They plan to guide a group of 20 or so people up and down the streets providing a commentary on the art there and possibly art that used to be there – depending on whether the council buffer squads have been particularly vigilant the night before. They hope to describe some of the different approaches to getting up used by different artists and describe from second hand knowledge some of the issues faced by graffiti artists in going about the clandestine activities.
The tours will take place whatever the weather is like.
First - pick your date – Sunday April 20 or Sunday April27. Walks will commence 3pm and probably last about 2 - 2.5hours
Then email your name, preferred dates and how many places you want to nolionsinengland *at* gmail.com
When lists fill they will email you requesting payment. Payment will be by paypal to a paypal account set up for the Cancer Sell fundraising monies. They will confirm the meeting point about 2 or 3 days prior to the walk. This gives them some flexibility to customise the route according to what's around.
Cost will be £10 per person, all of which goes to Cancer Sell fundraiser.
A good cause and you get to see some fantastic work. Not to be missed.
