Yardworks celebrates the diverse talent of artists using street and graffiti style expression. These particular artforms often capture the imagination and spirit of young people that have something to say about their present circumstances and environment just as it did in the graffiti movement in New York City, Washington Heights and the Bronx 30 odd years ago.

They need young people to help design a series of art works to be installed at public sites throughout Govan. Clydeside Initiative for Arts at SWG3 will lead online artist talks and workshops designed to find and translate the voices of young people into striking street art murals and public artwork.

This is a chance to take part and have your ideas realised by some of the UK’s top street artists, get involved in learning and developing your own skills and techniques and make your mark as part of this collaborative community arts project in Govan. 
SWG3 are also programming a series of Artists talks with dates to be released soon. Artists talks are, open to the whole community will give an understanding of the practice, processes and heritage of Street Art.
