OUTPOST: Art from the Streets on Cockatoo Island

The OUTPOST PROJECT sees more than 150 artists transform the industrial spaces of Cockatoo Island into a canvas of urban art. The first of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, the event is set to demonstrate Australia’s leading role in the street art movement.
