Announcement: In Motion Rotterdam & London

A traveling festival focussing on the newest creative trends, artist talks by trailblazing artists, immersive installations, mind-blowing afterparties and unique industry opportunities. In Motion is set for 19+20 September in Rotterdam and 10+11 October in London.

After two successful 2023 editions in the two metropolises of London and Rotterdam, In Motion returns to both cities in 2024, setting up camp in the always reinventing Maassilo (RTM) and in the trade-mark venue for brutalist architecture: Barbican Centre (LDN).

We literally met all our friends here, The Riot Club. You cannot even tell your life is changing, like until 10 years later.
