XTRAX Shorts

XTRAX Shorts is an opportunity for 12 artists to present work in development to festival promoters and potential partners with an aim to generate interest in their work.

XTRAX Shorts is designed to complement the showcase programme by providing an opportunity for artists to give a presentation to this audience of promoters and street arts professionals about new outdoor projects.
