Løkka-lykke gatekunstfest is an initiative from Løkka Gårdeierforening and Street Art Oslo, which springs from an idea to celebrate Grünerløkka's unique identity.


 

In its first year (2021) eleven artists were invited to produce site-specific artwork ranging from murals to small-scale interventions, with various dissemination activities such as workshops and guided tours.

The festival´s main production period was 21-27 June - during the first week of the school summer holidays - so that young people from Grünerløkka had the opportunity to participate in the event through Bydel Grünerløkka's UngJobb initiative.

Løkka-lykke´s primary goal was to provide a safe and meaningful way for the public to engage with art during a pandemic which has made it especially challenging to disseminate visual art in traditional museum and gallery settings.

We hope that the artwork and activities that form Løkka-lykke will enable people, both young and old, to explore this much-loved and unique neighbourhood, and experience the positive effects that street art can have in building pride in the places we live.
