About the festival
The Sand, Sea & Spray Urban Art Festival is an event which brings leading street artists to Blackpool to paint in the town. This will allow visitors and the local community a chance to experience and engage with the creative process of these artists first-hand and we hope it will also help to regenerate of parts of the town.
This Year’s Plans
International street artists are coming to Blackpool to paint live on the streets between Friday 10 and Sunday 12 July. They will work from a number of sites in and around the town centre. As well as giving people the chance to see great art created on their doorstep, the festival also includes:
· An artists’ Question and Answer session at the Winter Gardens
· An information point with maps and artist factsheets; a shop selling work by featured artists
· A series of school and community based workshops to build audiences and increase engagement.
