Street Art, August 2nd

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

We are doing it again! Join us along Queen Street West for the Flickr Global Photo Walk on August 2nd; the theme will be Street Art.

This is an afternoon-only walk, but feel free to spend the morning hitting other street art spots in the city, some of which are highlighted on the map! (Let me know if you are willing to organise a morning walk.)

Date: Saturday, August 2nd.

Meet: 1:00pm at the intersection of Rush Lane and McDougall Lane (near Queen & Spadina). [Map]

Post-walk: Electric Mud BBQ, 5 Brock Avenue (Parkdale)
Note: They don’t take reservations, so we’ll try to be there by the time they open (6pm) to secure enough tables. If we fail, there are plenty of other options in the neighbourhood. This is Parkdale after all.

Hashtag: “TOPW:SA”
Flickr also said: Be sure to tag your uploads with #FlickrPhotoWalk to automatically upload your photos to the group. Consider also tagging the photos with #StreetArt and #YourCity (the name of the city where you’re organizing your walk).

Walk Leader: Thomas; if you are lost or want to join us at another time during our walk, I can let you know where we are.
