WHAT IS BOW?

 

BLACKBURN OPEN WALLS (BOW) is an artist run initiative, designed to

bring communities together in conversation and creative inspiration, through street art.

 

Over 3 years, forgotten walls of Blackburn were brought to life with the creation of a vibrant outdoor gallery, by international, national and local artists, who together over 2 weeks, created a collection of large scale murals and art walk trails for the residents and visitors of Blackburn to enjoy.

Aiming to use the power of art in public spaces to improve northern towns

like Blackburn town centre, Blackburn Open Walls highlights Blackburn as a place for artists and communities to express their creativity, engage in creative conversations and believing ‘together is a beautiful place to be’.
