Walking tour highlights women’s street art

Monday, 2 May 2022

Women street artists have made their mark on Geelong over the last two months, completing 11 new creative works on walls, car parks, and shop fronts across the central city.

The women artists were commissioned by the City of Greater Geelong to profile women artists and their practice in what has traditionally been a male-dominated industry.

Deputy Mayor Trent Sullivan

Members of the public have the opportunity to join the artists on a walking tour of all the creative works on Saturday 14 May 2022.

This project has delivered a free outdoor gallery in Central Geelong. The walking tour will take you down hidden alleyways and past some local icons to experience a creative side to Geelong that you may have never seen before.

The artists have brought a unique sense of style and storytelling to Central Geelong.

The guided walking tour will cover approximately 1.6 kilometres and participants will be joined by the artists who will explain more about their works at each site.

The walk will take around one hour and provides an opportunity to celebrate women street artists and their completed works.
