History research and photography in January and February 2021, will be followed by a suite of exhibitions and events in April and May 2021.


Woden has some of the most iconic graffiti sites and legal practice walls in the ACT and beyond, such as the Woden Drains. Graffiti has been part of the landscape and community since the 1980s. 

The Woden Graffiti Project is recognising the significance of graffiti and street art in Woden by: Recording current graffiti and street art in Woden and the wider ACT, documenting its history, in the Woden Valley and beyond, producing events, exhibitions and activities to showcase current talent and present this history and building relationships to support future activity related to graffiti and street art.

The project will include interviews with graffiti writers who have worked in Woden from the 1980s to now, and we are also keen to locate images of graffiti from the past.
