Coming soon to Colchester

Download the app

Street Stories is an innovative campaign for Colchester which will create a more attractive high street, engage our local arts communities, and will deliver an immersive augmented reality experience for our residents and visitors.

By safely moving visitors around the artworks Street Stories encourages footfall across the city, and the augmented reality feature adds another dimension to the artworks, providing an added draw and making it a great outdoor activity for all ages to engage with. The artworks are brought to life with multi-sensory animation, and triggered by a free downloadable smartphone app.

Thank you for all artwork applications

A huge thanks to all of the artists who submitted artworks and applications. The response was phenomenal, and unfortunately we had to whittle down the number of applications to just eight.

We are now looking to develop the animations and will be back in touch with an update soon.
