Hang Outs... Hidden Sheffield, UK

Aftermath of:

This exhibition was the first of its kind in Sheffield. Organised by Rocket01 and Faunagraphic also featuring original works of theirs, pictures from local photographers myself included and Rusty from Stoke, and conceptual art from Moonko (See links below).

With all the pieces mounted, beers and wine chilling, we nervously waited to see who, if anyone, would come. And they came, the turn out was amazing with well over 150 people on the opening night. There was good representation from the graff and street art community as well as fans of the genre and the just plain curious. A great night was had by all, personally I met loads of lovely people and put a lot of faces to names. Oh yes, and I drank far too much as well!!

Throughout the weekend of the exhibition there was a steady stream of visitors again in good numbers. The exhibition has been seen as great success, the only negative feedback was that there could have been more pieces in a bigger venue, with this potentially becoming an annual event, I am confident that this issue will be easily resolved next time.

It was a privilege to be involved with this exhibition, I can only hope I get chance to do it again.
