Back to SUN in the City

We're pairing up with Rotterdamse Oogst: come and join us at Noordplein. We bring the Circle and a lot of energy in our SUNday program with us.

SUNdays is not necessarily happening on a Sunday. For the first edition we're pairing up with Rotterdamse Oogst. Rotterdamse Oogst wants to strengthen the regional food chain by organizing events and marketplaces, in the middle of the city, close to its citizens. We're teaming up with them for a unique program on solar energy: come and join us at Noordplein from 10 am till 1 pm on September 17. We bring the Circle and a lot of energy to our SUNday:

Say hello to the sun with Sun Salutes, enjoy the sunny performances by hoolahoop Performer Silke and singer Neila Moon. Sit down for a Solar Talk with Boudewijn Buitenhek to get in with the fun using Solar Cooker to make an espresso. Lastly, there is Solar First Aid in collaboration with Zon op Zuid and Zonnestad. Children get started with a fun workshop while our energy coaches amaze the parents with new ideas. We're here to help you on your way with whatever solar question you may have.

  • SUNdays is part of our Rotterdam public program: Sun in the City

    SUNdays is not necessarily happening on a Sunday. Instead on specific dates where we wish to celebrate the sun. SUNdays is created with inspiring Rotterdam-based makers and organizations such as YG Studios Melle Smets, (museum)ParX, Energie van Rotterdam and Zonnestad.

    We always welcome the sun, wherever we are, with the sun salutation. The sun salutation given by YG Studios gives a first warm-up and prepares you for the program the Sun in the City.

    We present artistic interventions by Rotterdam-based creatives in which the power of the sun is central; singer Neila Moon, dancer Mark S and hoolahoop performer Silke will experiment with the sun in a residency program. We will be showing the results of this quest at the ZONdagen. We are making this part of the program together with (museum)ParX, Tim Wes and André Marques.
