  • STREET JAM: A celebration of street art culture in Aberdeen

    Aberdeen has been a thriving hotbed of talented artists for some time. Inspired recent events like Nuart Aberdeen and Walk the Block have truly galvanized local artists and those who appreciate their incrediible work.

    We want to contribute to this movement…so we have organised STREET JAM. A one-day festival celebrating street art culture in Aberdeen. This is happening at six°north, Aberdeen on Saturday 1st July from 2pm until late. Entry is free!

    Here’s a rundown of what’s in store on the day…

    LIVE PAINT COLLAB

    We’re super excited to have some of Aberdeen’s most talented artists live painting at Street Jam. We will have a number of large canvases dotted around our venue that artists will be collaborating on. This will be happening from 2pm onwards.

    Confirmed artists include:

    Katie Guthrie, Craig Fisher, Honk, Ugly People, Tomasz Wrobel, Scott Bowden, Easi Peasi, Jetpack Dinosaur and Paul Bonner.

    We will be posting some examples fo the artists' work in the coming weeks!

    STENCIL MAKING WORKSHOP

    Our friends at MAKE Aberdeen will be running a stencil-making workshop on the day. Here you’ll be able to turn the most intricate design into a stencil on their laser-cutting machine. The workshop is free but is limited to 15 spaces. Materials will be provided - all you will need to bring is an idea of what you want to create!

    The workshops will be running at the following times:

    2.30pm - 3.30pm
    4.00pm - 5.00pm
    5.30pm - 6.30pm

    If you’d like to sign up for this workshop email design@sixdnorth.com with your full name. Places are reserved on a first come first served basis.

    OPEN WALL // BARREL TAG

    Once you have your stencil you can tag our open wall with it!

    This is the best bit…after the event has finished we will send all the stencils created to the six°north barrel store where they will be sprayed onto 15 barrels. You’ll then receive a FREE case of the beer as we release them!

    6DN ART SHOWCASE

    We will have a showcase of six°north artwork including a closer look at the recent rebrand. There will also be artwork from the following collabs on display: Cloudwater, Magic Rock, Harbour, Twelve Triangles, Rocket Brewing.

    DOCUMENTARIES

    We’ll be showing some great documentaries throughout the day on the big screen. These include: Piece by Piece, Bomb It, Stations of the Elevated, Style Wars and more.

    We have some delicous food lined up being provided by a local cafe in Aberdeen. Full info on this soon.
