Urban Culture is a collective name for a set of divergent and unique musical, visual, physical and creative forms of expression. These forms are brought to life mainly by young men and women who have grown up in, and been inspired by, urban environments. It’s an artistic lifestyle based on a mentality of ‘learning by doing’, entrepreneurship, and innovation. Here in Eindhoven, over the past fifteen years, Urban Culture have developed a strong group of young artists, performers and athletes, which has evolved and flourished into one of the preeminent collectives of its kind in the world. Each year organise Urban Culture an annual festival with over 25000 visitors from over 35 countries and their (break) dancers have graced theatre stages all over the world, with several of them being crowned world champion. In addition, each year, Urban Culture host the largest graffiti festival in Europe. Furthermore, the indoor BMX and skateboard centre at Strijp-S, provides them with a venue where a new generation of Olympic athletes is preparing for participation in the 2020 Olympic Games. They give young men and women the space, resources and support needed to develop their talents and to share them with the community and the world.
At EMOVES they dream of expanding their horizons even further by creating links to the world of technology, design and knowledge; in doing so EMOVES hope to further advance the innovative and unique potential of the dynamic scene. Thanks to the support and efforts of noble organisations like the Gieskes Strijbis Fonds, Cultuur Eindhoven and Brabant C, this dream is on the verge of becoming a reality: EMOVES have been granted access to the TDK grounds in Eindhoven for the next 4 years, where they are going to explore all the ways in which they can create new and innovative links. With all this in mind, they would like to invite you for an introduction to the world of Urban Culture; an uplifting afternoon filled with inspiring speakers, exciting demos, and most importantly, he opportunity to connect and network with their partners.
Together we will give shape to the future of Urban Culture.
