28 Apr Street Art in Rotterdam
There is a good portion of streetart in Rotterdam, and some very interesting works. Given the ‘rough edges’ of Rotterdam you would expect a lot of places with streetart. But apparantly the city hasn’t appointed much places where streetart is allowed. So do not expect a London, Paris or Berlin type of experience.
There’s a group in Rotterdam called Rewriters who are working hard to raise the streetart level in Rotterdam. Their aim is to create more areas where streetart can be created.
Most of the streetart you will find in the are around the “Witte de With straat” area, but there are also some nice work in the north area of the center.
Rewriters has created an app for IOS and Android with a streetart route in Rotterdam. I haven’t walked the route yet with the app, but looking at it I would certainly suggest to use it, or do a streetart tour by the same rewriters.
