Find Lismore's pulse

COME TO THE HEART and get ready to celebrate the Back Alley Gallery street party.

Lismore's laneways will this weekend be turned into party central as part of a push to bring people back to the heart of Lismore.

City centre manager Katie O'Rourke said the party was an opportunity for the community to come to the heart of Lismore and celebrate what the region has to offer.

"We really hope to get a couple of hundred people down here," Ms O'Rourke said.

"It's all ages, so everyone is welcome."

The street party, which will run along County Lane off Carrington St in Lismore, will feature live music from 13 local and interstate DJs, market stalls, and skate demos by Byron Bay Skateboard Coaching.

The free event will also see some of Australia's best street artists including world-renowned Australian street artist Phibs, plying their trade throughout the day.

Ms O'Rourke said the live street art was part of the third stage in transforming the laneway into an open-air gallery.

Street artist Julla said he would be painting an Alice in Wonderland theme on the day.

"It's my own interpretation of Alice in Wonderland," Julla said.

"It's all my own characters but based on the original work."

Back Alley Gallery project co-ordinator Nathan Eyres said the party had been the result of a lot of hard work.

"I have always wanted to put on a street party," Mr Eyres said.

"It's been hectic but it's been worth it."

Mr Eyres said the Back Alley Gallery was the perfect location for a street party because it was central to town but not too intrusive.

The event will kick off at 10am Saturday on County Lane in Lismore and runs through to about sunset.
