A walking tour of Salt River: lead by Craig Barrowman, who has a passion for street art and was one of the main guides in the recent International Public Arts Festival, where 20 artists were working on new murals. Craig will lead us on a walking tour through Salt River and share some of the rich history and architecture of this hidden gem suburb.

On route he will select a few pieces of street art and explain the philosophy behind these murals, plus give us a sense of how the NGO Baz-Art has impacted Salt River with this annual festival.
