Løkka-lykke Street Art Fest

Løkka-lykke gatekunstfest is an initiative from Løkka Gårdeierforening and Street Art Oslo, which springs from an idea to celebrate Grünerløkka’s unique identity.

Twelve artists are invited to produce site-specific artwork ranging from murals to small-scale interventions, with various dissemination activities such as workshops and guided tours.

The festival takes place from 21-27 June – during the first week of the school summer holidays – so that young people from Grünerløkka have the opportunity to participate in the event through Bydel Grünerløkka’s UngJobb initiative.

Løkka-lykke’s aim is to provide a safe and meaningful way for the public to engage with art during a pandemic which has made it especially challenging to disseminate visual art in traditional museum and gallery settings.

We hope that the artwork and activities that form Løkka-lykke will encourage people, both young and old, to rediscover this much-loved and unique neighbourhood, and experience the positive effects that street art can have in building pride in the places we live.

More infomation is avaiable at the events website or Facebook page.
