Boon Hamilton Street Art Festival is an exciting bi-annual
initiative to enhance Hamilton through the creation
of stunning murals in Hamilton's CBD and Hamilton East
Village. There are many pieces of awesome Urban Street Art
around the world that add to the character of the city and it's
surroundings. We want to bring this vibrancy to
Hamilton, and add to the murals given to the city by BOON
Hamilton's CBD is a place of development, where the
creative sector, renovation, new building projects and business
ventures are growing weekly. With the
addition of 11 new large scale murals, more and more people
will have the opportunity to experience street
art on a daily basis.
Feedback from Boon 2015 was overwhelmingly positive, with a
lot of excitement in the CBD and on social media.
The murals are Hamilton landmarks regularly featuring as backdrops
on social and commercial media.
To make sure we can deliver the event, we are seeking to raise
the final funds needed to cover materials - hire of scissor
lifts, ladders, cherry pickers and other equipment,
and accommodation and travel costs for artists.
All the artists and organisers of this event are giving their
time for free.
The murals will add to the walls painted in 2015 to be
an example of the positive force street art can be in the
community; urban beautification, tourism, social inclusion.
The murals will be a tourist attraction for the local economy,
bringing visitors and foot traffic into the Hamilton CBD
and Hamilton East Village. The murals will make a valuable
contribution to the health and vitality of the local arts
Your support of this crowdfunding campaign will enable us to
bring you this fantastic event, and hopefully allow it to continue
into the future!
Please help us to make BOON happen!
