Utrecht is bubbling with talented individuals and initiatives interested in sharing their passion for urban arts and sports. Unfortunately, these communities are not sufficiently supported and thus are not visible. These communities are also too scattered and divided in the city for the general public to find.
That's why we're hosting Street Culture Utrecht 2022, a one-day street culture festival where we bring the Utrecht street culture communities together into the spotlight for the first time.
Connection and Creativity
During Street Culture Utrecht 2022 aka SCU 2022, we will celebrate Utrecht street culture and connect the different street culture movements in Utrecht with each other.
Visitors of Street Culture Utrecht 2022 can get familiar with various creative expressions from the street culture, such as skateboarding, BMX, fashion, dance, music, and art. In addition, we offer a platform to young people who move within these subcultures.
Connection and creativity are what it’s all about during Street Culture Utrecht and Utrecht's street culture is in the spotlight for a day!
Workshops and Showcases
Each discipline presents itself with a workshop or showcase to the city.
For example, from skateboarding, there is going to be a cash for tricks contest on a skateable sculpture specially designed for Utrecht 900, BMX demos but also free skate and BMX lessons for young and old. A graffiti jam featuring some of the biggest graffiti artists in the city, dance battles, live DJ sets played all day long and on stage performances by emerging artists from the scene.
Community Talks, Food & Drinks
There will be a lounge area where visitors are invited to talk in a familiar setting about different topics like: More collaborations, increasing the network and the potential of street culture communities. Additionally, you can enjoy some soul food at our food court and drinks at the bar while you get inspired by all the distinct (clothing) styles and personalities.
