Interactive street art festival is coming to Newcastle

Four inspiring and internationally acclaimed street artists are transforming pavements into mind-bending 3D chalk artwork in Newcastle’s CBD.


In partnership with the City of Newcastle’s New Annual Festival, from 13th – 21st February, visitors can literally step into the art and become part of the illusion. Share your magic moments using #NewCTW.

Chalk the Walk is an urban art festival that helps bring unique and interactive street art to the community.

Stop by the Visitors Info Centre to see internationally acclaimed Artist Jenny McCracken’s work, Rudy Kistler at Market Street Lawn, Zac Craig at Laman Street and Leo Uribe on the corner of Crown and Hunter St.

Chalk The Walk Founder and Creative Producer, Andi Mether, said she was excited to be part of the city’s art festival.

“It’s an honour to be part of the New Annual Festival. Now more than ever we need to be supporting our local artists and celebrating diversity in the arts, Andi said.

“Newcastle has such an interesting history and culture, and our artists are drawing on some fabulous creative inspiration from the city’s background, in addition to the New Annual Festival’s "Illumination" theme.

“Visitors are encouraged to explore all four central art locations, taking in the different 3D artworks from our talented artists, while having a bit of fun and becoming part of the art”, Andi concluded.

The four artists will begin their works of arts on Wednesday 10th – Saturday 13th, ready for visitors to commence their walking tours on Saturday and beyond.

Chalk The Walk has delivered 16 pavement art festivals across Australia since 2005, in an aim to further enhance Australia’s reputation for culture and innovation.

Chalk The Walk is organised by Zest Events International.
