Santos in the spotlight during Rotterdam Verlicht!

This month the first edition of the ‘Rotterdam Verlicht!’ event has started. As soon as dusk sets in, special lighting is used to create a festive atmosphere at various locations (squares and other special places) in the city. The lighting is on until 11 pm.

In these difficult times, the event is intended to let everyone experience how beautiful the wintertime in Rotterdam is. Moreover, it is a call to illuminate the city and its inhabitants and to connect them with each other. To keep courage and to remain hopeful.

The old coffee warehouse Santos, 'back neighbor' of Bay House in the Rotterdam Rijnhaven District, will also be lit during ‘Rotterdam Verlicht!’ serve as "projection screen" for street art artworks by HIJS in collaboration with POW!WOW! Rotterdam.

‘Rotterdam Verlicht!’ is an event developed by Mothership on behalf of the municipality and will last until the end of February 2021.
