Graffiti has been part of Canberra’s landscape since the 1980s. What started with a few letters, inspired by TV and record covers from the US, grew into iconic sites such as the Woden Drains, just one of the many legal practice walls that have been established by the ACT government since the 1990s.
Here at the Canberra Graffiti Project, you can find out about graffiti (graff) history, culture and techniques, see galleries of contemporary and historical graff, submit your own stories and images and find out about upcoming exhibitions and events.
