In May 2017 the Heartwalk festival took Kalgoorlie-Boulder by storm as the first large scale public art project of its kind in the WA Goldfields. In the space of one week, 29 stunning murals were painted by local and visiting artists on blank walls and empty shop windows in the Kalgoorlie CBD in an explosion of colour and energy.
The week-long mural festival returns on 30th April - 5th May 2018, bigger and brighter than ever. Festivities include workshops, a meet the artists night, free walking tours, and a ticketed finale celebration in a reactivated urban space.
Heartwalk is made possible by investment from Government of Western Australia Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, Royalties for Regions, Goldfields Esperance Development Commission, City of Kalgoorlie Boulder, Regional Arts Australia, Regional Arts Fund, Country Arts WA, Anglogold Ashanti and our wonderful local sponsors, stakeholders and volunteers.
