We are pleased to announce free, weekly guided street art tours of Grünerløkka throughout summer 2021, thanks to support from District Grünerløkka and the Jacob Aall Bonnevie Legat.
Starting at Rodeløkka kolonihager (Norway´s oldest allotment gardens) and ending at Brenneriveien in the heart of “alternative” Oslo, tours will cover the roots of the street art movement and some historical artworks in the bydel, in addition to those produced as part of the festival - from large-scale murals to miniature sculptures.
Tours are hosted by either James Finucane or Hanne Ugelstad from Street Art Oslo and last approximately two hours.
At its core, street art is about bringing art out into the streets where it is accessible to all. Our guided tours provide an opportunity for both young and old to get involved in art in public spaces and experience the positive side effects this can have.
We hope that these added opportunities for engagement, made possible thanks to the support of Bydel Grünerløkka and Legatet til minne om Jacob Aall Bonnevie, can help contribute in some small way to a better situation for the people of Oslo following the corona crisis.
