Walls across the streets of Bunburry, Australia have been transformed thanks to the Re.Discover project that is now annually happening in this Australian city. Initiated by Six Two Three Zero collective, the idea was to use street art as a catalyst for urban development and social change by bringing communities together in conversation & creative inspiration. The organization founded Re.Discover with the purpose to revive a sense of community through the creation and conversation of street art. The vision behind it was to engage local and international artists through the painting and exhibiting of exterior murals in the streets of the Bunbury’s CBD in January each year. This January, the festival brings lots of amazing street art stars who will spend four days in the beautiful Australian city and adorn its walls.
