We’ll be back in September!

Due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, we were unsure whether POW! WOW! Rotterdam could take place in 2020. But today, we are happy to share that the Rotterdam Street Culture Weekend (of which POW! WOW! Rotterdam is part) has officially announced to fully go ahead!

The organization of the Rotterdam Street Culture Weekend (RSCW) goes full steam ahead to make sure the third edition of its event will take place, as planned on Friday 11, Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 of September 2020. All associated organizations have joined forces to submerge Rotterdam during RSCW 2020 with the best streetart, hiphop en urban sports.

Of course we’ll have to take necessary precautions to maintain public health, and all parts of the weekend will make it their top priority to do so. Stay tuned to our website and social media channels to keep up with what this means for POW! WOW! Rotterdam 2020. We’ll have more news for you soon!

POW! WOW! Rotterdam cancels all upcoming guided tours in the wake of the coronavirus

‘Super heroes!’ by FAKE

With medical personnel doing everything they can to help people in the wake of the coronavirus spreading, it’s important we all do our bit in trying to slow down the virus as much as possible. Therefore, we have decided to cancel all upcoming guided tours through the POW! WOW! Rotterdam neighborhoods, for the foreseeable future.

If you want to enjoy some of the beautiful murals made at POW! WOW! festivals (including Rotterdam) all over the world from the comfort of your own home, the POW! WOW! WORLDWIDE! Volume One hardcover book is only a few weeks away from landing in stores. You can order a copy wherever fine books are sold, including your local book store, which probably does deliveries too.

Support your locals, take care of each other and stay safe!
