It’s time to channel your inner Banksy and let your creativity shine – all over the walls of BoxPark.

The outdoor destination is celebrating all things urban and artsy, with the “I’m loving Street Art” interactive event.

The street art celebration kicks off this weekend (Friday October 19) and continues for the following three weekends thereafter. And not only will you be able to appreciate the works of others, you’ll also be able to get scribbling on the walls yourself.

Visitors will be able to contribute to the art installations including mosaic art and canvas painting, so you can share your artistic flair (or lack thereof) with the world.

As well as setting you loose on their white walls, the organisers are also throwing in a load of workshops for adults and kids and there’ll be live painting and graffiti sessions so you can see how it’s done properly – to the beats of a live DJ, no less.

There’s also a bit of body art on offer, with face painting and an airbrush tattoo station, so you can enjoy a temporary new look to match your artistic persona.

There’s also food stations dotted around to fuel all that creativity.

We can’t wait to dust off out paint brushes.
Free. Every Fri & Sat from Fri Oct 19- Sat Nov 10. BoxPark, Al Wasl Road (04 317 3999).
