2nd Streets of the North
The second Streets of the North saw some of the best purveyors of street art take to the streets of Liverpool, Stockton and Barrow-in-Furness. From the inspiring and provocative to the frivolous and whimsical there was something for everyone. Stockton was the venue for the Commissions Showcase - an opportunity to see a selection of new shows co-commissioned by the National Street Arts Festival and festival partners, while Barrow-in-Furness presented a packed programme of UK street performers and an inspiring education project involving the local community.
In Liverpool, the Brouhaha International Festival in partnership with the Streets of the North, created an exceptional programme of contemporary and traditional arts.
