About Animating Our Streets The Cube - Stirling’s First Street Art Festival

Stirling's business and creative communities are coming together to host the city's first Street Art Festival.

The event - Animating Our Streets - runs from Saturday September 22 to Sunday September 23.

Local people, tourists and visitors will be invited to contribute to an innovative public art project by drawing and writing on eight 1m high by 1m wide cubes based around the city.

The Cube is a collaborative initiative run by street artist Mia McGregor to encourage creativity.

Her cubes will be installed in Stirling Arcade, at Europa Music and the Sable and Flea Coffee shop in Friars Street, in the Kilted Kangeroo pub and the Thistles Centre.

The weekend also includes pop up entertainment spots as local up and coming performers bring music to the city’s streets.

And there will be documentary photography opportunities - telling the stories of local businesses and the transformation of the cubes - created by young people and led by Janie Meikle Bland who runs social enterprise Picture the Possible.

The Festival runs from 12 noon to 6pm on the Saturday and the Sunday and has been organised by Go Forth Stirling (the city's Business Improvement District) in conjunction with Mia McGregor and Janie Meikle Bland.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Animating Our Streets The Cube - Stirling’s First Street Art Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
