ADE ITAMEDA – PICA PICA PARADE

It’s been awhile since our last update. Busy times, but fun times! One of the things that kept us busy was, Lielo & her friends setting up a new foundation in Rotterdam called Pica Pica and the upcoming mini-art expo that Ade will have as part of the Pica Pica Parade.

Pica Pica Foundation brings independent places in Rotterdam together with a Parade in the summer

Magpie (Latin: Pica pica) is one of the most intelligent birds and is known for his passion for collecting striking glittering objects. Pica Pica Foundation aims to collect the most striking and newest places in different districts of Rotterdam during the Pica Pica Parade. It is organized in June, July and August at 26 different places in the city with 26 sing a songwriters / bands & art expo’s, with the center as a focal point.

“Several neighborhoods in attendance are having more and more unique places (coffee shops, barber shops, concept stores, cafés, design shops, streetwear, etc), but still work very independently. We want to contribute to the accessibility and diversity of Rotterdam culture by putting these places on the map,” says the organization as their biggest motivation. Through ‘Pica Pica Parade‘ the best independent spots and locations in Rotterdam are connected by a shared theme music and art.

New Rotterdam musicians are brought together with local artists during the Parade with several instore and terrace concerts. But also think of art exhibitions by local Rotterdam artists, as well as Pica Pica Foundation will show the Netherlands that Rotterdam has very much to offer and is a developing city where emerging initiatives will get a fair chance to bloom. People from outside the city will experience Rotterdam like a local during the Parade.

The map with all the locations & events on it is presented on Saturday, June 4th during the opening ceremony and after that available for free on all the attending locations.
