On Wednesday Converse opened the CONS SPACE 002 BLN, turning an abandoned carpet factory into a creative space for street art, music and skateboarding. Three floors offer plenty of space for creativity and artistic elaboration, taking place in various events and artworks.

From 3rd until 16th of October you can stop by, skate the indoor-skatepark by Roberto Cuellar and meet other skating legends. On the first floor you can check out the open gallery where street art by creatives such as Quintessenz, Klebebande and other local artists is exhibited. They will develop this area during the coming two weeks, filling it with exciting new artworks. As some of the artists are living together on the 3rd floor they are offered the possibility of a vivid exchange, bringing new collaborations to life. A variety of special events, performances and creative exhibitions will take place in the coming days in the gallery on the first floor, the different lounges and the outdoor cinema of the CONS Space 002. Today the skate lab is open from 2 pm to 7 pm. Afterwards you can watch a movie at the open cinema starting at 8 pm or visit the open gallery. We can also recommend to check out the screen print studio with Marcel Krebs. Outside is a BBQ and bar as well as graffiti painting by Dejoe. Furthermore the launch of the latest ‘art’ issue by Lodown will be celebrated today together with DJ Luca Lozano. Check out the whole program here. Enjoy.
