The Great Yarmouth Underground Gallery is a groundbreaking effort to spread public street art that embellishes and enriches the visual landscape of Great Yarmouth.
We are very excited to be delivering this pioneering project as part of Making Waves and are actively searching for collaboration and support from all the partners involved.
Seeing Art, seeing art all around makes people discover things about Great Yarmouth that people didn’t know before. People will see the works on the walls and have discussions about them and if you can make people speak to one another that is a good thing in itself.
It also directly encourages plenty of youngsters when they see things like this to decide they may want to be artists themselves.
The impact that Art has on the streets is more intimate, its owned by the community and cultivates a true sense of geographical belonging, character and well being.
Great Yarmouth has the potential to become a cultural centre for contemporary urban arts for the region, this project will revitalise the visual landscape of Great Yarmouth as well as proving free access to contemporary art to the community, also attracting art tourism to Town.
This Project is planned to be delivered over the course of 2 years and it has legacy element to become the first outdoors public art gallery in Great Yarmouth and the Stepping in Stone for our vision at Reprezent Project.
Reprezent Project will revitalise a vital public space that has been vandalised and considered dangerous by the neighbourhood transforming it into a contemporary art underground public gallery that will rotate exhibition of local artist on a 3 month basis and aims to use street art as a message of hope, identity, peace and prosperity with the aim of also elevating the Town’s profile to external audiences.
