Thursday August 18, 2022

This Saturday August 20th we are bringing High Park to life in a major way – and like all our public events, this will also be free to the public! This is our annual Graffiti Jam, where we will bring seven graffiti artists together for a day of live painting on the high park site. All our graffiti artists will tackle their walls at the same time to a backdrop of amazing music from DJ’s Sonidef, Territingz, Jenuiine & Nasty G. Establishment Brewing will be on site with BUMP Beer & we will have some delicious food and snacks as well. After a full day of painting and partying on the rooftop, High Park will transform into an outdoor cinema; we will be screening Wes Anderson’s ‘The French Dispatch’ under the moon to cap off the night in a spectacular way.

Come show some support for this community of incredible graffiti writers – street art sits at the very heart of BUMP’s mission to transform and activate urban space and the work of the graffiti artists we have been able to program have started important conversations and shifted spaces in the city. Spread the word, this is going to be super fun!
