About the Project
Renovating a beloved DIY skatepark
In the summer of 2019, Seven artists were invited for one-week residencies at The Skateroom gallery in Brussels, to transform it into their workshop, create works of art on skateboards and to showcase their work.
The challenge was to create a collection of skateboards that would be auctioned during Brussels Gallery Weekend to raise funding for Byrrrh & Skate and other local initiation programs, such as Monsters on Wheels, allowing them to offer free skateboarding lessons to local underprivileged youth.
While the funds were raised successfully over the summer of 2019, COVID-19 caused delays.
