About Graffiti Culture
We work towards our ultimate goal a dynamic and sustainable alternative space for art, heritage and education, based on the street. A physical location where we can show and experience the history of (Dutch) graffiti culture, create an environment that offers opportunities to the current underground and its exponents. We believe in connecting with today’s generation based on the mentality of the past.
Accessible to the public and science
The Dutch Graffiti Library Foundation is responsible for making its collection accessible to the public and science by means such as:
- Opening a physical library
- Archiving its collection
- Making its collection visible
- Publishing books
- Lending out objects
- Staging regular exhibitions
- Providing communication and advice
- Knowledge sharing
The Foundation is convinced that the Dutch Graffiti Library collection can be of great added value to research and in historical education. That it can inspire and contribute to the effective dissemination of knowledge about the graffiti culture or derivatives of this culture. The Foundation serves as a knowledge platform and modern library and will make the Dutch Graffiti Library collection accessible to education professionals, museums, researchers, incrowd and other interested people. The Foundation strives for cooperation within the graffiti culture and embraces the DIY (Do It Yourself) mentality.
