News Article Date:

A new podcast tour is helping to tell the intriguing stories behind some of the city’s much-loved street artworks.

The podcast was created by Storytowns – the winner the 2019 start-up business incubator The Ideas Place.

Listeners will join a guided tour with Storytowns podcaster Emily Edge as she undertakes a journey of discovery, visiting the most awe-inspiring world-class street art in Warrnambool’s CBD.

“This guided walking podcast tour reveals the fascinating and unique stories behind the street art found mostly in Warrnambool’s CBD,” Ms Edge said.

“While you are standing at the works, you will hear directly via the podcast from the artists about their inspiration, techniques, and the meaning behind their work.

“I have been quite surprised with the fascinating stories that have been revealed, from the indigenous significance of The Ngatanwarr Mural, to the curious story of the painting stolen from Bojangles Pizzeria.”

The podcast can act as an audio tour as you visit each artwork in turn. Alternatively, it can still be enjoyed as a regular podcast at home.

The audio tour was made possible by the Warrnambool City Council.

You can find the podcast, along with an accompanying map created by Ella Webb, at storytowns.com.au/art.
