Street art project update

Street art poster final

Rising Phoenix Studios has been busy getting the Street Art project rolling. Some wonderful submissions are starting to come in. We are gaining growing support from a number of local Tasmanian businesses who are acknowledging the value of this project and the efforts of the young Rising Phoenix artists organizing it. Homelessness touches so many Tasmanian lives – it’s scary. We are enthused by the growing community support across our beautiful state helping to raise awareness about this issue.

Due to a number of requests, we have extended the Street Art submission deadline to the 31st of December. Keep those wonderful pieces coming in and thank you for helping to spread the word.

It will be an anthology collection of short stories, poetry, photography and art – a celebration of passions, endurance, hopes and dreams.
