Tourism Oz’s bold Melbourne graffiti move

This seems brave to me – Tourism Australia is promoting graffiti as one of Melbourne’s cultural highlights.  

I must admit I’m pro graffiti – I once came back from the UK to Australia via New York so I could see Banksy’s Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill.

In this case, it’s just one of many informational videos on the Tourism Australia YouTube channel.

But nonetheless, this is a risk. For a government-funded body to be seen to be promoting something which big chunks of society see as a blight is pretty bold.
