While all the walls of our 2021 edition can be found in Feijenoord, between Hefpark and Mallegatpark, today we are taking over yet another park. VANS & CANS takes place today, Sunday 12 September in the Afrikaanderpark on the Afrikaanderplein. Opening hours: 12:00 – 20:00. Come along to see the artists paint the vehicles live.
Music is curated by Het Hiphop Journaal; Dutch hip hop, with an extra strong focus on Rotterdam, of course!
As we follow the covid-19 measures, we don’t have many food or drink options available. VANS & CANS 2021 therefore, will be a walk trough-event.
Come to see some unique artworks AND to check out the last items of our 2021 merch collection, which will be sold at the giant painted truck by VANDALS ON HOLIDAYS!
Cheers and see you this afternoon!
Everyday during this week, Rauwkost Collective offers you a behind-the-scenes look at POW WOW! Rotterdam. In our daily journal ‘POW! WOW! Daily’, we capture the atmosphere in Feijenoord, while the artists are busy with their murals.
In today’s episode, we travel through the Feijenoord district to visit Emanuel Barreira, who’s one half of Halfstudio. He’s painting at the most southern corner of Oranjeboomstraat, making a mural with the most important word in history of words: love. Despite to the current times we’re living in right now, full of growing hate, he will continue spreading the love; all the way from Portugal to Rotterdam!
At the north end of the neighborhood,
the Hamburg based artist Anna T-Iron can be found painting a long and
high mural. “Your ego is not your amigo”, it says. With that
message, she wants to remember the people that life could be easy if
you want it. Don’t think that you need to reach the level other
people are expecting from you; just go with the flow and be you. In
your own tempo, with your own goals.
In Hefpark, right next to the new big murals by Ox-Alien and MOTS, a big cross track can be found, where BMX riders from the neighborhood practice their tricks. They also want to show them to the audience of POW! WOW! Rotterdam.
Expect an open training show by the dumbriders, full of tricks and dirt jumps. The young guys from Rotterdam will make crazy jumps and perform tricks in the air. The higher the better for them. Fearlessness and spectacle are literally in the air tonight! You are invited to witness it yourself, from 8 PM.
Entrance is completely free. Location: BMX cross track, Hefpark
