Jerona van der Gevel
Jerona is a filmmaker, feminist, cat-lover and board game enthusiast. Hoping to create engaging cultural content that makes the city (and ultimately the world) a slightly better place. Or at least a bit more fun.
The way we work has been changing, so it’s only logical our offices change with it. Ahrend is a company that designs office spaces and decorates them with pieces of their own product lines as well as furniture by other designers.
Technically speaking summer has been upon us for a few weeks now, but as we all know, the Dutch weather is anything if not unpredictable. The coming days promise a lot of sunny hours, so this your chance to venture out and visit some of Rotterdam’s finest terraces.
For a few years now, it seems board and card games have been making a serious comeback. And why shouldn’t they? Nerds have known it all along, playing games is cool. Different venues in the city, among which Rotown, have experimented with board game nights, but Jerona's favourite location for a competitive night of Secret Hitler has to be Stroop.
The Rotterdamse Dakendagen organized a multitude of events all over the city, from film screenings to parties, on exciting locations: rooftops, that otherwise would have been closed off to the public.
We attended Open Doek Festivals second edition; a carefully balanced and diverse program that offers something from everyone. From short films and seminars to talks ranging from local initiatives to big national directors.
