Artists at Vacant Space Live Art During the SALA Festival
Vacant Space is an Adelaide group dedicated to sharing their love of urban art and culture with a wider audience. They aim to document and disseminate the lifestyle and creative output of graffiti writers, artists, photographers, illustrators and musicians.
On Sunday December 8 Vacant Space Urban Culture Festival is presenting Grand Street Art: Adelaide City at Rundle Park in the East Parklands. Running from 1-6 pm this free family friendly festival will showcase the latest in Adelaide's urban culture with demonstrations, live entertainment, and art gallery area with works for sale.
It will feature live artists including stencilists, shrimpers, and people using aerosol and marker techniques. There will be a public spray wall where you're free to try new techniques, help an artist complete a piece, and learn the best way how to hold and spray a can. It's a unique chance to learn all about street art from some of Adelaide's most experienced practitioners, and will demonstrate much more than you will find on offer in places like Adelaide's tunnels.

Artists will be also competing in competitions including a 60 minute aerosol battle, and a 90 minute marker competition, while you will be entertained by dance performers, a community chalk board and plenty of activities for children including their very own kids' art area.
Of course there will be food for the body as well as the mind, with popular Adelaide food trucks including Sneaky Pickle, Papas Hotdogs, Frothalicious Coffee, Brazilian Party Supplies, Giro Gelati, and Johnny's Popcorn.
To keep the party atmosphere moving the VW Bars will be serving your choice of cocktails or mocktails from their stylish van.
Leafy Rundle Park is a brilliant choice of venue for the Vacant Space Urban Culture Festival, right on the edge of the hip East End. So after you've done your leisurely Sunday stroll and coffee on Rundle Street, pop over and explore the best of Adelaide's alternative culture scene.
