199914 June - 4 September
1st Streets of the Midlands
In 1999 the National Street Arts Festival drew together StreetFeast in the West Midlands, Streets of the East Midlands and a new festival in Rushcliffe as the Streets of the Midlands. This offered a region wide celebration of cutting edge street arts and education programmes for local community artists. For example, Leicester hosted its second year of the Raw Talent youth arts festival and the 1st National Conference of Street Arts and Education.
Later in the year, local organisations, community groups and workshop participants excited Wolverhampton town-centre audiences with a fun-packed, eye-catching display of performances including dance and theatre.
