CRACK HOME MUSIC.
Crack Family is no doubt one of the best coming hardcore hip-hop bands from South-America. Beatz and flow from Bogotá-Colombia to the world. For all the people listening rap since back in the years, we know they re-invented the gender down there and, love or hate, a whole scene evolved around them. This is the first underground tour of a cult hardcore rap group straight from da south, full of power and poetry, reality and rebellion. Believe your eyes. Don’t miss it.

De Staat van de Stad : XX?
Yesterday we had a privilege to attend an exciting speeches by incredible people at Stadsschouwburgamsterdam, in collaboration with Pakhuis de Zwijger, Gemeente Amsteram Bureau Onderzoek en Statistiek, Rabobank (staat voor de stad).
- would you shower at your neighbour’s house?
- the difference between Amsterdam as portraited in Financial Times and it’s true issues
- 100,000 statements at police on criminality in Amsterdam
- freakonomics of safety: New West is one of the safest areas
- 61% of rent-controlled appartments in Amsterdam vs 33% in Netherlands
- there is a growing concern over the increase of the problem-groups
- there are enough empty offices in Westpoort for not to build another one for a long time in the whole of Amsterdam
- the centre of Amsterdam are breathing traffic, whilst outskirts are ecological heaven zones
- mis-use of volunteers by local governmental agencies - a joke on ‘social cohesion’

Artches for Youth at Westpoort
KlimHal in Westpoort Amsterdam is one of the most exciting climbing indoor/outdoor facilities. It’s premises are next door to YoungStartups and 3 minutes away from Sloterdijk Station. Quarterly Westpoort Symposium meet up was held this time round right there, at the sexy and young Klimhal. It made sense, now that Artches for Youth have received their European Funding, to introduce them to the Westpoort Onderneemers group.
Artches for Youth is a project initiated by Michaell, a 23 year old resident of Slotermeer, New West Amsterdam. His idea was inspired by activities of the Stichting Glamorous Outcasts in his back-yard: Tales of the Nine. But when he heard about Artches in Sloterdijk, he was on fire!
“it all makes sense”, said Michaell at our first meeting, “we can connect at least 12 local boys with 12 companies across the road, we can organize the opening ceremony and generate public attention, we can do so much for our buurt” Needless to say that the project managed to get excited even Freek Ossel, who met Michaell during the Westpoort Symposium, organized by NewAmsterdam. Mr Ossel is working hard on engaging and sparkling the motivation and youth around our city.
Michaell has since written the project and got accepted by Youth in Action Program to execute it. In fact, he and his project will be filmed by the European Youth in Action organisation through out its execution. Michaell is being coached by Najim from Stichting Combeat.tv, Utrecht.
