City College Peterborough are excited to announce the launch of their Street Art Festival featuring Korpfest x Battlelines.
The event will be held at the Brook Street Campus in Peterborough on Saturday 2nd July from 10am-5pm. Local, national and international street artists will be creating art LIVE at this event to inspire the community into learning and showcase the beauty of street art.
We have a very exciting line-up that includes some of the region’s top street artists along with some national and even international heavyweights. From Peterborough we have viral superstar Nyces and the artist behind the NFT hit ‘Derpy Birbs’, Process. A little further out in Stamford we have Paul Kneen hot off the back of his solo show at The Peterborough Museum. From Birmingham we have Roots who was a finalist in last year’s UK Illustration Championship. From Bristol we have Sprite who combines a passion for animals with positive mental health messaging – Sprite works alongside street art heavyweight Snub23 who will also be painting. Finally, we have 2 more big names in Irony whose spray paint portraits are incredible and Nol who brings his bold illustrative style all the way from Holland. We truly believe this line up stays relevant by supporting our local artists while also delivering serious credibility with a strong group of some of the UK’s finest street artists.
This event will also feature Battlelines - two artists battling head-to-head in a gruelling competition where you will crown the winner!
City College Peterborough will be hosting numerous free workshops and activities on the day including Decorate Your Own Trainers, Indian Cooking Experience, Digital Photoshop Workshop and more – to ensure you don’t miss out on these experiences, visit the City College Peterborough website or social media pages to secure your place.
