Postponed: Wall to Wall Festival

Fri 3rd April, 2020 – Sun 5th April, 2020
Multiple
Benalla, Victoria
No paint-worthy wall is safe as a tiny town becomes an open-air gallery, with world-class street artists working on murals day and night.

This event has been postponed due to coronavirus concerns.

For three days in April, the small township of Benalla – just over two hours’ drive north-east of Melbourne – will again become the canvas for the Wall to Wall Festival.

Now in its sixth year, the festival annually attracts thousands of out-of-towners to see international and local artists literally paint the town. The result is world-class street art spread across building walls, silos, gallery spaces and even the local church.

Virtually every paint-worthy wall in Benalla becomes part of the huge open-air exhibition, with live painting day and night. This year’s program has been curated to ensure a 50/50 gender split.

The line-up includes Gonketa, a deaf Melbourne-based artist known for his bold use of colour; UK-based artist Helen Bur, renowned for large murals that have coloured walls around the world; and Wall to Wall Festival regular Kaff-eine, who will be creating a special illustrative work inspired by climate change.

There will be a bunch of “off the wall” activities too, including street-art walking and bus tours, artist talks and workshops, live music, and interactive activities including an immersive VR experience.
