Seattle Street Hues seeks Tour Guides
Global Family Travels and 206 Zulu are hiring Tour Guides for our collaborative Street Hues Seattle Urban Art tour for the Spring/Summer season. This small group walking adventure, which starts at Washington Hall explores Seattle’s varied street art, from murals and throwies to handstyles, stencils and more. Guides, who are street artists themselves address topics such as ownership, power, and identity in public art.
Our Street Hues Tour Guide is responsible for engaging and entertaining up to 14 guests, but most tours have 6-10 people. They must be able to command the attention of the tour participants for several hours while divulging all relevant and important information about Seattle Street Art and the culture of graffiti, while adding their personal stories.
Each tour is approximately 2 hours, with tours on the weekends, and some special weekday tours. Apply here.
ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
About Street Hues: Seattle Urban Art Tour
Seattle boasts a vibrant culture of street art, from the powerful pieces done in the wake of Black Lives Matter protests, to the world’s longest mural display along the light rail corridor in SODO, to ever changing murals on buildings and in alleys brimming with the brilliant work of local artists. Join our small group walking adventure to explore the street art in Seattle’s Capitol Hill and Chinese-International District neighborhoods.
On our Seattle Street Hues Tour, we travel by foot and streetcar to examine tremendously varied street art, from graffiti, tags, and “sticker bombs” to elaborate spray paint, brush work, and stencil pieces. Become the proud “public” in public art as we celebrate local artists and explore topics such as ownership, power, and identity in street art.
