Ignite Social: Can street art shape a city

13 April 2023 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 pm


Come along to the April Ignite Social to hear from local and national artists on the potential role street art has in shaping a city’s cultural journey.

Street art is so visible, and has the unique effect of changing the environment people live their daily lives in – it can add colour and character, and tell the stories of local communities, where there once was a blank space.

As we look forward to Chelmsford’s own street art festival, Concrete Canvas 2023, it is a great time to reflect on how this can play a lasting role in our city’s future.


  • TBC – We will hear from a local artist, who is involved in the evolving street art scene of Chelmsford. To hear their views on the role of street art for our city.
  • TBC – Alongside an artist from another UK city, known for its street art. They will talk to us about how street art can re-define a space, and reflect the connection communities have to their home.

Where: Patch, 5-6 Grays Yard, Springfield Road, Chelmsford

When: 7pm, Thursday 13th April

What to expect: Relaxed atmosphere, socialising, bar, and the chance to hear from some inspiring speakers.
