I Have a Dream Mural

Newtown Sydney 'I Have A Dream'This is the iconic and now heritage listed ‘I Have a Dream’ mural featuring Martin Luther King and the aboriginal flag below it.  is in Newtown. Painted in 1991, it is one of Newtown’s oldest, and arguably most famous murals.

Initially when it was made it was an illegal piece f graffiti painted in the dead of night over two nights.

It appears briefly in the Coldplay video ‘Sky Full of Stars’ which was shot on the streets of Newtown. The video does show the vibrant feel of Newtown. (it’s funny to see everyone on their smartphone trying to film / photograph the band during the clip)
