PARKT! is back! Our exclusive anual regional Graffiti competition is taking place indoors this year.
To celebrate this 3rd Edition of Parkt! will count with special acts and theme...
This year we have invited International artist from Canada Brent Ray Fraser and a live singer to perform a unique multimedia performance, also we are introducing to the evening a flavour Drum and Bass Music, a Video Mapping show and Free Visual arts Workshops for everyone to enjoy!
BRENT RAY FRASER:
"Award winning visual artist armed with an Emily Carr University Fine Arts degree- and curiously ambitions by nature- Brent creates original multimedia works of art that are exhibited and collected internationally. Fraser's provocative approach and signature style reflect as adventurous imagination. Brent was scouted by Louis Vuitton and commissioned for live shoe portraits across Canada. He enjoys pushing creative boundaries and gained worldwide notoriety for applying paint directly to luxury brands of women's handbags and men's suit jackets. Brent's creative expression includes live art performances for corporate events and edgy short films. Watching Brent paint at a live show is incredibly entertaining even for those who are new to art. Brent is frequently commissioned by corporations and can be seen publically at many stores and restaurants. He entered the hotel industry with his first commissioned original art collection for all rooms and common areas at the Hi Whistler Hostel."

PARKT! is the stepping stone of what our purpose is as a community project. Every year we will join all our efforts to make PARKT! the platform to showcase and ultimately inspire the population of Great Yarmouth and surrounding areas.
Participation in events such as these helps rejuvenation and promotes investment in our town as an attraction by developing a constructive and mainly creative component of the traditional strategy put in place by local authorities and government to attract tourism and revenue.
Fundamentally our aim is empower and add true value and transferable skills to the life of young people in the area by creating a sense of social inclusion and engagement.
Through having a more inviting and occupational approach to young and unemployed individuals we can divert them from negative ways of life toward to behaviours of personal development, increased self-esteem, a bigger sense of belonging within society, acceptance and even financial independence.
