RISEfestival, a celebration of the globally recognised movement that is urban art, is taking place in Croydon from 5th to 15th September. Led by RISEgallery, this extraordinary 10 day event is completely free!
The festival will see the arrival of over 60 new murals and installations in and around the town centre from some of the world’s leading urban artists. These works will add even more colour to Croydon’s skyline and solidify the town’s reputation as one of Europe’s key destinations for street art.
Amongst the 75 artists taking part in the festival are; Dotmaster, Conor Harrington, BK Foxx, Doudou’Style, Phlegm, Lovepusher and Cityzen Kane.
In addition to the vast range of murals created by these artists, the festival will include a ground-breaking programme of free events including live music, workshops, walking tours, independent film screenings, and a major block party with world renowned DJs. This will all be underpinned by an exclusive new exhibition at RISEgallery and a pop up shop selling amazing and affordable art work.
With such a diverse programme of activities and events, RISEfestival will ensure art and cultural experiences are truly inclusive and available to all.
