Art Rotterdam South Tour

Er is iets aan de hand Op Zuid! In een bijzonder proces hebben zich in de afgelopen 4 jaar meer dan 150 kunstenaars uit binnen- en buitenland genesteld in een en hetzelfde gebied waar als gevolg daarvan vele kunstinitiatieven zijn ontstaan. Een proces dat wordt aangestuurd door de nauwe betrokkenheid van deze kunstenaars bij de stedelijke ontwikkelingen op Zuid en door de samenwerking met andere organisaties en instanties.

Zo zijn er collectieve werkplaatsen, expositieruimten en projectorganisaties ontstaan, maar ook een nachtclub, een café, gezamenlijke binnenterreinen, taalcursussen, een cultureel reisbureau, zelfbeheerstichtingen, cultuurfondsen, publieke werken, workshopprogramma’s en meer. Op zaterdagavond kun je een tocht maken naar Rotterdam Zuid en een bezoek brengen aan een aantal van deze ateliers, plekken en initiatieven. De ontvangst vindt plaats in de centrale hal van het kunstenaarsinitiatief B.a.d dat intrek heeft genomen in een voormalige schoolgebouw. Een ateliercomplex dat in 2010 op een bijzondere manier zal worden herontwikkeld om nog 40 jaar dienst te doen als artistieke broedplaats.

As part of the side-kick program of ArtRotterdam, the artists in Charlois organise an ‘Open House’. From the central hall of the artists’ initiative foundation B.a.d short trips are possible to other artistic places, with presentations, exhibitions and performances. A definite program and time schedule follows at the beginning of January 2010*

On Saturday evening you can go on a trip to the South of Rotterdam and visit several of these places and initiatives. The reception is held at the central hall of the artists’ initiative foundation B.a.d that has occupied a former school complex. A studio complex that will be redeveloped in a special manner in 2010 as to maintain its function as an artistic generator for another 40 years.
The opening starts at 19:30, the tour will start at 8 sharp!

There are 13 Tours you can choose from. A number of them are within the building, the others are to the various satellite locations in Charlois. From B.a.d, 6 buses will bring you to those satellite locations, all within 2 minutes from B.a.d (you’re free to visit them by bike or on foot). After approx. 30 minutes the bus will bring you back to B.a.d to see one of the performances.
