The tour will commence at Rollingball, the Film and TV production studio at 850 Hunter Street, next to Il Volcano). Rollingball is a great new enterprise producing various film ventures, offering creative styling, event management and creative concepts surrounding film and direction. Renew Newcastle has given Rollingball the room to expand and capitalise on local talent and geography.

The tour will head east taking in street art along Beresford Street before hitting the official opening of Four Point Gallery (681B Hunter Street), the exciting new creation of a collective of local artists.

Next point of call is the underground boutique bar showcasing art and music, The Terrace Bar (only over 18s allowed). Light refreshments will be on offer here.

The Tour will conclude at Steel City Collective (451 Hunter St) which is a creative event management space offering all kinds of design energy by local musos and artists. They undertake live art, facilitate workshops and provide commissioned art works among other things.

Renew Newcastle is making a huge difference in Newcastle by providing short and medium term leases to local ventures in otherwise disused buildings or buildings awaiting redevelopment. The result is not only a more ascetically pleasing city, but it is provided an incredible opportunity for local artists and artisans to have a community presence.
