Walthamstow’s one-day street arts festival returns with demonstrations, displays and hands-on arts activities including dance, music, BMX and skateboarding demonstrations and coaching, artists-in-action, films on The Big Screen, pop-up galleries, crafts, food and drink.
1. Demetri aka Krah creates spellbinding comic-book style street images in cities around the world - and now the international artist is showcasing his talents in Walthamstow!
2. The highly skilled riders and skaters from Team Extreme are set to appear at Street17 Arts Festival, showcasing their BMX and skateboarding skills with mini ramp shows and coaching sessions.
3. Artist Michelle Reader reuses waste materials to create unique, figurative, recycled sculptures. She’ll be creating a community sculpture of a firefighter putting out a blaze, with the help of visitors who want to participate.
4. Local artist and illustrator, Carl Harris, has, over the past few years, started developing a visual storyline based upon Catboy: the boy with the cat shadow, inspired by his cat Harrison and nephew Austin. He’ll be giving drawing demonstrations on site.

5. You’ll recognise the work of this talented, energetic street artist, Hannah Chloe aka Adamaszek, from her contribution to Walthamstow’s Mural on the Marsh. Known on the street art scene for bringing a delicate, painterly touch to her urban works, she also creates softer edged portraits and has a penchant for featuring foxes. She’ll be creating art on site on the day. It may or may not feature a fox.
