How's this for a crazy idea: A bunch of people getting together to embroider a fence – of street art – over a cup of tea?

That's the essence of 'The Street Loves Nana', which will take place at Splore next month.

The artists involved will be creating works about their nanas – paying homage to their achievements, best qualities and unique personalities – and are raising funds on Kickstarter for the initiative.

"It’s about conversation and community," says founder Margaret Lewis, of The Big Idea. "It’s also about craft – nana craft but not as your nana might have done it."
