ALL DAY
Exhibition: Fashion Statements @ Amsterdam Museum

Tiny waists and (hence) corsets are on show at the Amsterdam Museum where the 18th and 19th century costume collection is given an airing. What are these clothes telling us about the conventions of the time and their effects on the wearers? And are our modern-day equivalents equally restrictive and prescriptive in their own way? A number of designers have taken the costumes as an inspiration and created their own. Fashion Statements is on until September 9

Oerol Festival @ terschelling
ALL DAY
Oerol Festival @ Terschelling | Friesland | Netherlands

Every June, the island of Terschelling in the Wadden Sea is transformed for ten days into a unique natural stage for theatre, dance, street theatre, art and music.

Terschellings Oerol festival has a reputation as one of the most fun, most exceptional theatre festivals in Europe. From its roots as a small festival in 1982, Oerol has grown to become a true phenomenon. Every June, the island of Terschelling in the Wadden Sea is transformed for ten days into a unique natural stage for theatre, dance, street theatre, art and music. The shows are created or adapted specially for the exceptional locations where there are performed. From theatre spectacle to mime, from intimate musical theatre to hilarious circus shows, from Westerns to interactive installations: you will find all of this and more in the dunes, on the beaches, in the woods, on the dikes, in sheds and barns and simply on the streets.

With 130.000 tickets sold each year Oerol is a big theatrefestival that bridges the gap between emerging artists and a large audience. Hundreds of (inter)national programmers scout new work here. Besides this significant contribution to promoting mobility, Oerol also creates a temporary society in which artists and audience meet for several, consecutive days over which relationships deepen. With 75% of revenues coming from non-governmental bodies Oerol is a true cultural entrepreneur.

We are delighted to be your guide to the next edition of the Oerol festival – a fascination born from the passion of one man, and since then transmitted to tens of thousands. It is a great privilege to be able to share this fascination with so many others. Each year, the energy the festival generates attracts hundreds of artists to the island, and thanks to the endless curiosity of all the visitors, they feel the freedom to create new works, to experiment, investigate and present these.

Atlantikwall Museum open on Sundays only @ scheveningen
ALL DAY

The Atlantikwall Museum Scheveningen feature several original German bunkers from the Second World War. The figurehead of the Atlantikwall Museum Scheveningen is the command bunker in the complex Widerstandsnest 318 (Verteidigungsstab Badhuisweg). A man-bunker has also been set up in this complex and a toilet bunker has been made accessible. On regular open days it is possible to visit the command bunker, and there are volunteers ready to provide information and answer questions.

Widerstandsnest 318 Scheveningen
The primary museum location of the foundation is an authentically furnished command bunker of the type 608 (Bataillons-, Abteilungs- oder Regiments-Gefechtsstand). From this bunker and nearby villas in the Second World War the military command of Stützpunkgruppe Scheveningen was conducted by the occupying forces. The bunker is largely original and gives you the unique experience of a tangible past. There are also original historical objects of German, British, Canadian and American forces on display.

Man’s bunker
In the adjacent man-bunker bunker of the type 622 (Doppelgruppenunterstand) on the Badhuisweg there is a ‘time capsule’: one of the two lounges is furnished with exclusively unrestored objects. You get the impression that the bunker has remained untouched since the end of the Second World War. In reality, most bunkers in the Netherlands were looted after the war and stripped of all valuable parts. The other room is an exhibition space for photographs, art and historical objects.

Accessibility
The bunkers on the Badhuisweg are located at numbers 119-133, next to De Boshut coffee house. The museum is accessible by tram line 9. Get off at the Cremerweg stop, from there it is a two minute walk to the bunker. Car is free to park within walking distance of the museum

Entrance is 4 Euro (cash) and 2 Euro for children until 12 years.

I Love HipHop Festival @ various locations
ALL DAY
I Love HipHop Festival @ Various Locations | The Hague | South Holland | Netherlands

The Hague will be transformed into a hip hop city from 26 to 30 June during the international I Love HipHop Festival. Fans of this subculture can live it up during a series of concerts, master classes and festivals.

Hip hop is a musical genre consisting of a stylised rhythmic music that commonly accompanies rapping. It developed as part of hip hop culture, a subculture defined by 4 key stylistic elements: MCing/rapping, DJing/scratching, breaking/dancing, and graffiti writing. Other elements include sampling (or synthesis) and beatboxing.

The festival will partner with young artists, designers and artists from kindred movements. This makes I Love HipHop bigger than hip hop and even more interesting to a wider audience.

Highlights of the week
Hip hop lovers can enjoy themselves the entire week in The Hague with a wealth of performances, parties, master classes, workshops, demonstrations and a movie night in Filmhuis Den Haag.

The highlight of the week is the I Love HipHop festival in the Nieuwe Kerk on Saturday, 29 June. With street art, breakdance battles and live shows by hip hop artists.

The organisation will also have its own stage with an enormous street art wall in the special I Love HipHop area at Parkpop on Sunday, 30 June with breakdance battles and live paintings.

More information
Tickets for the I Love HipHop Festival from 13.00 to 23.00 hrs. on Saturday, 29 June cost € 12.00 in advance and € 15.00 at the door. Tickets are available at ilovehiphop.myonline.store.

Almost all of the other activities during the I Love HipHop Week (apart from some of the master classes) are free.

Praatcafe – Dutch Borrel (Speaking Dutch event) @ citizen m
ALL DAY

Rotterdams Praatcafe is a social group for anyone interested in practising Dutch in a cozy environment. Any Dutch language learners can enjoy practising Dutch at ease and with fun. In order to do that, we bring into the group enthusiastic Dutch language learners, professional Dutch teachers, professional language coaches and other social Dutch native speakers. Together we will create creative and social events to make friends, have a lot of fun and practise speaking Dutch. Events will be held in Rotterdam.

They organize a regular “borrel” (drinks) on every second  Tuesday of the month, from 19.30 to 22h. During the borrel the only language spoken is Dutch.
