IMPORTANT - IF YOU ARE SIGNING PLEASE DO NOT DONATE IMMEDIATELY AFTER. THIS MONEY IS ONLY GOING TO CHANGE.ORG IT HAS NO BEARING ON THE SUCCESS OF THIS PROJECT.

The art community in Bondi needs your help! 

We are on the cusp of launching a new street art experience right here in Bondi - at the Blair Street Basketball Courts to be exact. 

These are the basketball courts that are open to the public to use at any time and are also the same basketball courts with a HUGE blank exterior wall. 

In the past month, we have approached the private owners and pitched the idea of turning this space into a community art event on December 7th. 

Our pitch was a simple two-part concept. Firstly, divide this mammoth wall into 5 sections and have local and upcoming artists paint murals on them.

Secondly, use crowdfunding and access to the space to ensure this is an experience supported and wholeheartedly enjoyed by the people of Bondi.

Well... they loved the idea, in fact, the owners have thrown nothing but support behind it.

It has led us to engage five unbelievable artists, local businesses, live music acts, and food to all participate on the day. 

BUT there remains one crucial element before we can truly commit to moving forward with this event. 

This is first and foremost an event for the whole of the community to enjoy and as such, we NEED to prove that there is an appetite for it in the community. Your signature goes a long way to validate our idea and to help create a new cultural and creative experience within Bondi.

Who are we?
We are two born and bred local guys who are looking to get this project up and running for no further reason than to see more art in the community and to create a new experience we can all be proud of.

Why crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding not only allows us to pay our artists (they truly deserve it) but it also means everyone in the community can directly contribute to making this happen. 

We aren't talking huge donations either, these are $10, $20 or $50 contributions. Which allows people of all ages and backgrounds to show their support!
