A Celebration of Community Involvement And Skateboarding

Albany’s gnarly downhill skate park, The Snake Run, is the world’s oldest community funded skate park. It’s a pilgrimage site for skateboarders from around the world. February 2016 marks the 40th anniversary of its opening, when American skating legend Russ Howell first rode its winding curves.

To celebrate this iconic site, our opening event in the Great Southern is a thrilling collision of skateboarding, dance, parkour and street art all driven by an extraordinary soundscape.

The Snake Run Project celebrates one of the world’s oldest skate parks, the Snake Run in Albany, and its local legends with an event combining cutting edge contemporary performance, freestyle skating, bands and more.

SNAKE RUN - Sat 13 Feb 5.30pm
Highly-skilled skateboarding meets contemporary dance in a dynamic performance that explores the relationship between the snake, skin and the history of the Snake Run site. This high-octane event features surprising moments of beauty amongst the daring and unexpected.

As part of this urban art project, the designs of more than 100 people are laid onto the concrete sides of the Snake Run. Each design represents its creator’s connection to this legendary place – the skin lost, the fear conquered and the love found.
