Under the roof of Denim City

Dutch
Graffiti
Library

Under the roof of Denim City, located in the renovated old tram yard De Hallen Amsterdam, we put graffiti on the map as cultural heritage. By showing work, sharing knowledge and actively looking for collaboration, we create interest in graffiti heritage. Our collection offers stories, context and inspiration for people, brands and organizations. We believe in connecting with the next generation based on the mentality of the past and the movements of today.
