Last year’s biketour I organised as a guide for the MoMo festival was about the history of mural art to street art nowadays, which you can find/see here in several parts of the town.
Well, get ready to grab a bike to check out the new street art project which got made for all to see for the upcoming years: ROAR, Rotterdam Art Ride.
Foundation Mesh and Marjon v/d Linde set up this plan and they received a grant from the municipality to execute this big art project in the south part of Rotterdam.
The project also got local kids from age 8 – 18 involved to join with the artists and have them work on designs as 4 pillars were available for them. This is a collaboration with NIFFO Gallery as it has earned an important place at the Afrikaanderwijk for youngsters set up by Zoë Cochia.
The murals will remain on the pillars for a period of 5 years.
Come (to the Afrikaanderwijk) & see for yourself!
