Waterloo Street Artist Roberta Finnegan

In November 2016 I had a chat with Waterloo Estate street artist Roberta Finnegan about how she got started doing street art and what inspires her art.

At the age of 79 Roberta has taken up street art as a protest against the destruction of parts of her community. Chief amongst these concerns is the NSW Government’s proposed demolition and replacement of the Waterloo Public Housing Estate where she lives. Roberta is part of a group of local residents running the We Live Here 2017 campaign. The campaign’s aim is to put a human face to the Waterloo Estate and become a voice for a community facing eviction.
