OSCAM Writerscamp, Speak Session and showcase BOUT IT #5

OSCAM Writerscamp, Speak Session and showcase BOUT IT #5

During ADE week, OSCAM and Prince Claus Fund will once again provide a platform for female-identifying and transgender hip hop artists, celebrating their significant contributions to the genre, through a writerscamp, an OSCAM Speak Session and a showcase. The writerscamp is a 7-day program where artists from abroad and the Netherlands can learn from each other with the ultimate goal of producing and launching 1 song. They showcase this song during ADE in OSCAM and in the Melkweg with 1 song of their own in addition. Afterwards, during an OSCAM Speak Session, they will talk about their love for Hip Hop.

Hip hop is more than music: it is both a form of personal expression and a shared culture. Hip hop – the art and culture – is hugely popular on a global scale and resonates with people from all socio-economic backgrounds, but is often misunderstood within the professional art world. Placing hip hop in a museum creates space for an interesting cross-pollination between two different art worlds. The global becomes local, the personal becomes cultural and the audible becomes visual.

More information about the showcase and the OSCAM Speak Session will be announced soon.

Most festival events have an age limit of 18+ (and sometimes even 21+ or 23+). These are Dutch governmental rules which state that below the age of 18 you are not allowed to enter a club.

Please double-check the promoter's or venue's website to be sure you can access the event!

Yes, the Pro Pass grants you access to all ADE official festival events. Even if a festival event is sold out, you can still access the event with your ADE Pro Pass wristband. During ADE there are over 500 festival events and hundreds more cultural and conference events you can enter with the wristband. One thing to keep in mind is that there is a limited capacity that each venue can take into account for ADE Pro wristband holders. This means that, for some of the more crowded events, you have to arrive early to ensure attendance. Once capacity is reached, ADE Pro holders will be let into the event on a one in-one-out basis.

We dance together, so please be mindful of yourself and each other. We expect an open attitude from our visitors towards other guests, regardless of their origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion and age. If you see or experience any unwanted attention, harassment or behavior of any kind that makes you uncomfortable, please speak out and notify staff.

Please keep in mind: we love being your annual host, therefore, we would like to ask you to enjoy yourself responsibly.
