Section 8

Section 8 are collaborating with local collective W.C.S.S. (Working Class Secret Service), street artists such as Mike Eleven, not to mention a handful of local street wear labels and DJs for a gathering this Saturday. Working together, these brands are celebrating street art, live music and clothing.

Saturday January 20 marks the day that Section 8 gets a fresh coat of paint from renowned street artists including Ruskidd, Kenz and Mike Eleven – who was recently included in Melbourne Street Art Guide’s 40 most iconic artists. Punters can come watch live painting at anytime after the day kicks off at 1pm as entry is free.

In terms of music, Melbourne favourites Jackson Miles, Amin Payne (Condensed Milk), Sean Deans, Billy Hoyle, Thanks and Melo Felo will be creating the day’s soundtrack.

WURC, also from Melbourne’s west is a clothing collective selling from labels Ruler Wurc, SNO, MOST Melbourne and HWY.

Section 8 has become known for celebrating emerging and established street artists and the venue is one of Melbourne’s favourite laneway venues. Section 8 was built into a carpark in Chinatown’s Tattersalls Lane in 2006 out of a repurposed shipping container and wooden palettes, since then it has become a mecca for local and international artists.
