ON THE SAND is an initiative by a collective of artists in Rotterdam
with the aim of celebrating the freedom to create.
" Imagine yourself on the beach and you have this burning desire to make something
beautiful with the sand that surrounds you. You accept that whatever
you make will not stand the test of time as nature runs its course.
And yet you give it your all, focusing your entire energy towards performing your best...
" ON THE SAND is an alternative space and stage for all artists who share this joy of being free to create and perform without prospects or boundaries.We settle in empty buildings/spaces and renovate them by the use of recycled materials into something temporarily – but beautiful. Here we explore new creative ideas and use the inspiration of the local environment to bring a cultural wave to the neighbourhood. At this moment On The Sand is being located in a former Turkish supermarket in Rotterdam, Kralingen-Crooswijk.
