Founded in 2010 Keep Australia Colourful has been developing a really strong and positive approach to Graffiti in Australia.

Keep Australia Colourful is a campaign developed by Graffiti Artists and lovers of Graffiti in response to the NSW State Government's ‘Graffiti Action Day’.

On May 15, Keep Australia Beautiful is teaming up with the NSW State Government for their second 'Graffiti Action Day'. Their aim is to mobilise volunteers all over the state to paint over as much graffiti as they can.

On the same day, we urge you to join us and take a stand on behalf of Graffiti and Street Art as valuable forms of art and culture. The government wants to 'Keep Australia Beautiful' by painting our streets, lanes and public spaces various shades of beige - but we want to Keep Australia Colourful! Let's show people how great our cities could look if there were more places for artists to create pieces legally.

If you want to join us, here's what to do...

Graffiti/Street Artists: find a space, and make it look colouful on May 15.

Whatever you decide to paint, poster, stencil, knit, sticker ... be sure to include a reference to Keep Australia Colourful in your piece. Yes, people ... you can put aside your ego for one day and join the KAC crew, we know you can do it!! :-) Of course, we are not encouraging you to do anything illegal! Then, upload your flicks on our website and/or facebook:

If you can tell us where you are going to be painting beforehand, even better - we can plug your session on the website/facebook too. And if you want to be available for media comment on the day, send us your details, and we will add them to our press release.

Graffit/Street Art Lovers: write a letter to your local council, and/or to the NSW Attorney General Greg Smith ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ), telling them why you love graffiti and street art and why you want to see more of it.
