EMOVES 2017 – Day 1
EMOVES 2017 started with a bang! Urban Culture & Sports takes over the city and started the first day with Shut up and Trick & Hop the Block at Klokgebouw, Beer and Book presentation at MU Art Space, BMX Freestyle Testrun at 18 Septemberplein and the official EMOVES kick off party at the Effenaar.
Shut up and Trick
Fun, sharing, challenges, battles, workshops and brotherhood, it was all there at a new edition of Shut up and Trick! Yesterday there were jams, training and the Horse Challenge. Everybody could participate and could win the first pricemoney of Shut up and Trick. The winner of the Horse Challenge is Benjamin Cauvy from France
Hop the Block
Just like Shut up and Trick was yesterday a warm up day. It was a nice and relax atmosphere Klokgebouw. All the freerunners were there to hang out, jam, train and to get ready for the speedcontest of today. Make sure you will be there at 14.00h to see the athletes in action.
Beer and Book presentation: Sorry for damage done
Over the past few months, Jasper van Es, Wladimir Manshanden, Vincent Wittenberg and the Eriskay Connection have worked together on the book: Sorry for Damage Done. Yesterday was the Beer and Book presentation!
The starting point of the book is a huge database of 50,000 pictures of ‘graffiti and plaque in public space’. Graffiti/ sticker/poster-removers made two pictures; one photo before cleaning and one photo afterwards. “Each object and wall had to have a picture before and after. These pictures were made between 2007 and 2013. During that time, Eindhoven conducted a zero tolerance policy. That has not been that way for a long time”.
BMX Freestyle testruns
The ramp is there and so are the bmx freestylers! As soon as the ramp was all set at 18 Septemberplein, the bmx-ers went for a test ride. This gave us the opportunity to shoot some beautiful images!
EMOVES kick off party
Together with our friends Beatoven, Shit is Bangin and CAKE we wanted to start EMOVES 2017 with a bang. And so we did! Hiphop, R&B, Soul, Funk, Rock, Reggae, Jazz and everything in between. It was all there!
On to Day 2!
