World of the Witte de With Quarter Art FestivalFestivals / Rotterdam
September 12-14, Various
The World of the Witte de With Quarter arts festival returns to Rotterdam's most contemporary neighbourhood in a showcase of the cutting-edge work and creativity to be found at the institutions nestled along the Witte de Withstraat!
The contemporary heart of Rotterdam
The World of the Witte de With Quarter looks to introduce visitors and residents to the various artistic and creative organisations (and individuals) working in the district.
A bit of a cultural secret, the area hosts an agglomeration of museums and galleries that is often overlooked, including the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Kunsthal Rotterdam, TENT, Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, WORM, the Maritiem Museum and the Havenmuseum all within walking distance.

Under the guise of Stichting Kunstblock, the three day long festival opens the cultural season in Rotterdam through a mix of creative acts and exhibitions accompanied by the participation of local entrepreneurs, residents and restaurants.
Boasting an impressive concentration of galleries, museums, hip stores, restaurants and cafes, the Witte de With Quarter festival is a great way to (re)discover the more charming side of Rotterdam.
