The UpNorth Festival’s main objective was to give ordinary people an encounter with art most commonly associated with urban areas. During three separate editions, prominent figures from the global urban art scene participated in creating an extraordinary event which would result in large-scale pieces that made an impact in the otherwise isolated and rural surroundings of the festival’s locations. The events placed both the artists and the local population outside of their comfort zones, and the results were both visually stunning as well as profoundly heartwarming. MAKING MONUMENTS follows each incarnation of the festival, and how the artists changed the lives of the locals and their surroundings in a most unexpected way.
