About

CHANGING THE WAY YOU SEE THE WORLD

Next: JAKARTA! 2017

Micro Galleries reclaims disused and forgotten spaces and reactivates them as tiny galleries that are free and accessible to the local community. Bringing together international and local artists, it features work that challenges ingrained ideas, blurs the line between street art and fine art, and aims to help change the way we see the world, our environment and our community – even for a micro moment.

Featuring artists from around the world as well as work by and through collaborations with locally-based artists from wherever we hit, Micro Galleries sneaks up on you from lane ways, scraps of forgotten land, ignored walls and unexpected potholes. Wander about, discover new works and don’t be surprised if they’ve disappeared, moved, or been changed by passers by.

Micro Galleries aims to demonstrate that art is for everyone and can have a positive impact on a community; that art does not have to only be presented in galleries and theatres, but can break out of these spaces and ingrain itself into a community; that a community can have ownership and involvement in the creation and appreciation of art work and that art can change how people perceive social issues or their environment in a positive way – even if it simply changes someone’s day for the better; that street art isn’t just graffiti and vandalism but a way to reactivate spaces in a community and change a town into a fun, exciting, curious and wonderful canvas of works.

So, be curious, look twice, crouch down, stand on your tip-toes, squint, get up close, and peep into the cracks and crevices of the streets looking for new ideas, new perspectives and how artists can change the world, and your town… in small and creative ways.

Want to know more, first? Throw your email in here (we will guard it like a micro vault) and be the first to hear about call outs, new town announcements and new project releases.

Trip Down Microlane

Look how awesome all the previous events were. Sad you missed it?  Or you made it and want to re-immerse yourself into some micro madness; make sure you don’t miss out on any of the upcoming ones. It’s good. Even better than 12 euro bagels according to Teresa Schebiella.
