The Battle of Bijlmer is a OPEN MIC FREESTYLE RAP Event with a prize.
A winner will be announced by appointed judges and from the public by the following criteria: delivery, flow, style and audience response.
Participants are asked to use their native language (Sranan, Papiamento, Indian, Malaysian, Ghanaian, Arabic, Dutch, and others).
The idea is to have Rap sessions in as many languages as possible, as a way of valuing the diversity of Bijlmer through a freestyle battle.
The event will be documented in a video and the footage will be used for the production of a short film to be presented in a group exhibition at CBK on the first week of November 2015 – final show of BijlmAIR, a residency program for visual artists.
