On Saturday, September 16th PrintRoom joins the annual Rijnhoutplein Festival, co-organised with our colleague organisations and small businesses in the neighbourhood. You can expect a vibrant afternoon with live music, fashion shows, presentations and workshops.
PrintRoom will once again join forces with Patricia Fonseca Monteiro at her Invalid Atelier, where we will make protest banners for our branch of the Protest Banner Lending Library. You’re invited to join us and make a banner on a topic of your choice!
PrintRoom’s Protest Banner Lending Library, part of the larger Protest Banner Lending Library by US-based artist, writer and educator Aram Han Sifuentes was part of the Protest Processie Parade exhibition at the Zeeuws Museum in Middelburg. The end of the exhibition was heralded by a parade to the city station, with dozens of visitors displaying their self-made banners. From there they traveled back to Rotterdam.
During the Rijnhoutplein Festival both old and new banners will be presented on the square and at our headquarters. The banners are also part of the Groot Rotterdams Atelierweekend Rotterdam on September, 16 and 17 at Het Archief, where Herman Lamers curates a show. PrintRoom’s workshop space will be located in the basement of the building.

You can join the workshop at Rijnhoutplein on 16 September.
