This is a public service announcement: MAMA is 21 year old!
21 years of MAMA is 21 years of graffiti art, skate-culture, fashion, games, graphic design, mass-culture, nightlife, internet art, social media and fan-culture. In short, the meeting of youth culture and arts. From mid-October until mid-November MAMA organizes events under the title Breaking Barriers - a manifestation to celebrate our eternal youth. Remember, kids: age ain’t nothing but a number!

So, what’s on the menu? A performance centred around skate-object Twist & Shout, a journey through MAMA’s history as seen through the eyes (and pens) of young visual artists, a spectacular dinnershow and a party extravaganza.

GC Skate Mom @ Twist & Shout
20 Oct.

Location: Willemsplein 77, 3016 DR, Rotterdam

Popularly called 'the Wokkel', Rotterdam loves nicknames, Twist & Shout is a skate-object designed as part of MAMA’s pitch contest 'Reclaiming the Street' in 2010. The artwork was made for skateboarders and freestylers who are familiar with claiming public spaces as part of their living world. The Wokkel was only this year conquered for the first time by skateboarder Tim Zom. HipHop & Skate collective Green Cabin hosts a best trick & art contest under the title GC Skate Mom.
