NUART production has been running for a week preparing the streets of Stavanger and ‘Tou scene’,a large converted Victorian brewery which is the hub of the festival, for some seriously amazing artwork. Nuart officially begins today, 8th September 2016 and you can check out the schedule below…

The event to kick off Nuart’s official opening begins with the ‘opening’ of the ‘The Aftenblad Wall’ at 1700hrs. The wall is in collaboration with Stavanger Aftenblad newspaper and was launched last year, by Sandra Chevrier as a new public art initiative.
