Secret Walls Melbourne.

We're very lucky here in Melbourne between music and art there is something happening every single night.  Secret Walls (formerly known as secret wars) is the worlds premier live art battle. Originating from London, UK it is now here in Australia having spread world wide.   The downlow: its an art battle between two artists/teams armed with only wall space, a black marker and 90 minutes to showcase their skills.  This year the competition is held at the Order of Melbourne in a series of rounds throughout the year with the final being held at the end of November.  Round one is Wednesday 30 May so get down to support your local artists as winners are determined on crowd noise as well as specialist judges.  Tickets are $20 available at moshtix.  See info below for the first battle.

As the days get shorter and the air gets so damn cold you can see your breath throughout the entire day, its easy to say 'up yours' to winter.  But we've decided to embrace the chill factor here at DY and focus on everything that makes this time of the year fun and just that little bit easier to handle.  Get inspired...
