Every day the IBB founders and artists David Bade and Tirzo Martha make new work with various social practice artists and the public present in the studio. That work forms a part of the constantly expanding exhibition. All you can Art 3 includes various successful formulae from the previous editions such as the Think Tanks and pre-master classes as well as the Summer School. The collaboration initiated last year with three Rotterdam partners in the care sector and education is also being continued so that the Kunsthal and IBB can involve special target groups in the project. A new feature of All you can Art 3 is a mobile studio that enters the neighbourhoods of Rotterdam to reach more people and to stimulate the exchange of knowledge and meetings between cultures.
For six weeks David Bade, Tirzo Martha, former IBB artists in residence Liesbeth Labeur and Rieneke de Vries and former IBB students Elvis Chen and Roxette Capriles are holding a studio in the Kunsthal. They make new artworks together with the public and partners and teach the Summer School students. A space for open debate in which art academies are also involved offers scope for Think Tanks and pre-master classes as well as an opportunity to engage in discussion with one another. The social component of All you can Art – the deployment of art and imagination to bring different nationalities and target groups together – ensures an exchange of stories and ideas between artists and numerous other target groups such as the elderly, homeless young people, ex-addicts, advanced secondary professional education students, Summer School students and the public in the Kunsthal studios. IBB wants to bring the development of talent within reach of everyone at every level.
Into the neighbourhoods with the mobile studio
Besides collaborating with partners in health care and education, this edition of All you can Art takes a further step to reach people in Rotterdam. Throughout the summer a mobile studio will move from one location to another, visiting cultural events in the city or local initiatives in shopping or neighbourhood centres in, for example, the Afrikaanderwijk. Entirely in accordance with IBB practice, residents, passers-by and visitors to the event are approached and stimulated to join in working on artworks in or around the mobile studio or to exchange ideas. This mobile studio is manned by various artists, Summer School students and participants from the partner locations. The activities of the mobile studio can be followed online in the Kunsthal.

Join the ThinkTank
ThinkTank 'Impact gauge: wtf!?!'
Tuesday 21 August, 15.00 hrs
Location: Kunsthal Rotterdam
The Think Tank Impact Gauge: WTF!?! deals with the question of how we can preserve the space in which these meetings and individual experiences continue to count, leading to qualitative (visual) results. How can we make that impact visible so that we can share it with others and inspire them instead of resorting to a format in which to give an account?
Follow the summerschool students
The All you can Art Summerschool 2018 has started! Creative talents - of all ages, backgrounds and educational levels - participate for six weeks and have the chance to develop themselves in the artistic field. All students will experiment, cooperate and debate under the guidance of renowned artists. You can read all about it in this blog!
Rotterdam partners in health care and education
The collaboration with three Rotterdam partners – Stichting Laurens (care for the elderly), Het Zuiderpark College (advanced secondary professional education) and Antes (psychiatry and care for addicts) – is being continued again this year. The artists hold an extra studio with one of the partners where they work for a couple of weeks with the residents, students or patients. This setting provides scope for the exchange of knowledge, stories, cultures and skills. The Summer School students are also involved in the artistic process and acquire
experience with working in a social context on various locations. In this way the students work on improving their skills in a broader frame of reference for art and creativity.
LOOK BACK TO 2016 & 2017
