Dutch Street Art Awards 2017
On the 2th of June, Amsterdam Street Art and Boomerang Create organize for the second time the Dutch Street Art Awards.
With this unique award show all the well deserved credits go straight to the artists.
For us the Dutch Street Art awards is something fun we needed to do. Because of the simple fact that if we didn’t, some big brand would. Still not a big problem but in this case we, as Amsterdam Street Art are responsible for the production of the show. With this we can follow the vision of our foundation, to give the artists a platform including all the credits that they deserve.
“For a lot of street artists this event still feels a bit strange, an award show for an underground subculture…? Yes this is something I totally understand. But since this is the second time we organize the Dutch Street Art Awards, I know the relevance of the concept and I see it as great value and exposure for the whole Street Art scene”
For the jury, we invited a heavy weight group of people who are involved with Street Art. With this group we guarantee a wide range of expertise and honest nominations.
Mirik Milan (Night Mayor of Amsterdam) / Thomas Termaat (aka Joker. Graffiti Legend) / Bert Haagendoorn (Chairman / Ambassador Dutch creative industry)
Tracy Metz (Journalist / Author of the talkshow Stadsleven) / Leon Keer (3D Master) / Hugo Kaagman (Stencil Legend) / Wayne Anthony (Founder LSD magazine)
We’re lucky with our partner Boomerang Create, who trust our concept and without whom we wouldn’t have many possibilities. To mention one highlight of this award edition is the location.
De Posthoornkerk is a great and spectaculair venue for this show. This old church in the center of Amsterdam with impressive stained glass walls will provide us the best atmosphere for this award show hosted by: Birgit Schuurman.
I would love to tell you guys more about the coming program, the food, the drinks, the dj and way more but I think this is something you u need to explore yourself. Last year the Dutch Street Art Awards were sold out pretty soon and I’m sure this will be the same with this edition. Tickets are on sale for only €10 and I can guarantee you that only the goody bag itself (without contents) has more value then the entrance ticket.
Those who keep an eye on our FB page have already seen the crazy prices that we will give away this year. Besides the coolest award you can think of (made by: 2Fast) you can also win a paint trip to Aruba, Greece or a photography city trip to Barcelona. Win a year of MTN94 spray cans, curate your own exhibition or paint a big canvas in the upcoming Street Art museum. With these prices we think we support the individual artist as much as we can and we add something special to their career as an artist.
With this blog I also like to thank our sponsors and partners. Without them the goody bag was empty, we needed to bring our own drinks and the most of us could only dream about painting in Aruba. Without saying anything about the program, I think you can guess a lot seeing the logo’s of the brands who support the Dutch Street Art Awards 2017.
All nominated artists receive an exclusive invitation for the Dutch Street Art Awards 2017.
