Showroom MAMA, playground 't Landje, Schotse Kerk, Waalse Kerk, BAR
The OONALYMPIC games will take place in the Cool neighbourhood of Rotterdam, a very diverse neighbourhood with a relatively large amount of outdoor space. Parents bring their children to school and there is a large group of active residents who dedicate themselves to the neighbourhood in many different ways. There are churches, a skate park, neighbourhood associations, sport clubs, etc. Sports are a key part of the arrangement of the space. The neighbourhood representative is active in bringing together different groups of residents through sports and games. The Rotterdam arts community also comes together on this cultural axis.
The OONALYMPICS aims to bring together all the different groups in Cool and create lasting connections between the neighbourhood, sports and culture. For the OONALYMPICS, OONA has created a graphic identity which will transform the district into an OONALYMPIC park for the duration of the project. The participation of the neighbourhood is essential for the project to be a success. OONALYMPICS will strengthen this commitment.
During the Wereld van het Witte de Withkwartier festival from September 13-14-15, a festive grand finale will take place with participation of other cultural institutions on the Witte de Withstraat. After the OONALYMPICS a number of objects, such as the grandstand from the presentation at MAMA, will be donated to the local residents to further develop their ambitions.
