What is ‘Streets Alive’?
Streets Alive is a combination of two projects ‘Art is Calling’ and ‘Tell Me Stories’. This creative arts project aims to create an outdoor art gallery, bringing vibrancy and colour to pieces of street furniture in the Top of the Town. Created by some of Basingstoke’s most talented artists and storytellers who have taken inspiration from local history, heritage, people, buildings and biodiversity to put Basingstoke on the street arts map.
Painting has just started and will be happening over the next few weeks, so keep an eye out for new public art popping up in the town centre. When all the paintings are finished, an app will be released where you can follow a trail of the artwork on benches, planters and telecoms boxes and find out about the pieces and the artist. As a guide, they will be in London Street to Winchester Street, Church Street and Wote Street and down New Road. Follow Basingstoke Festival to keep up to date with this brilliant project.
