POPPED - Byron Bay live art laneway event
Sat. 20 May 2017, 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm AEST
Six of Byron Bay's most talented street artists will soon transform a currently unused public space in the Byron Bay CBD with vibrant, original artworks, giving a fresh new look to Byron's beloved 'Surf Alley', honouring some of the town's greatest surfing personalities. On Friday 19 & Saturday 20 May, a celebration event will bring the reinvigorated space to life with music, food, bar, cool lighting, bespoke built furniture, green walls, live art and charity auction, featuring the brand new Fresh Air Gallery, talks & ideas program, and much more. Popped is socially and environmentally responsible, with a zero waste policy, using eco-friendly, non-toxic paint, and raising money for local arts organisations including the Byron Community Theatre.

Art is important. Incalculable research has proven the necessity of art and culture in individual and community flourishing, and Byron Bay is the perfect breeding ground for cultural innovation. Our goal with the Live Ideas Program is to generate a space for community discussion and education around art and culture, and how it brings us together.
Popped is passionate about the local community and contributing to a vibrant cultural future for the Byron region and beyond. By creating a platform for conversation around art, placemaking and well-being from a local perspective, we hope to inspire and encourage the entire community to grow this initiative together.
