Yesterday, in gorgeous weather in a park in St Kilda, Katie and Lea from I See Magical Creatures pitched their pyramid, spread out their beautiful ground cover and invited passersby to create magical creatures to install around St Kilda.
Check out the photos of the day!
The Guerrilla Poets, Preprint and Haikubomber, made a little film of their guerrilla poetry drops yesterday:
