Baroeg's event for people with disabilities

HAPPENING ON 20 April 2024 – A notable gathering is set to take place at Baroeg under the 'Everyone Rocks' event, aimed at integrating individuals with disabilities into the vibrant local culture scene. This initiative offers an inclusive day of music, dance, and communal activities.

Everyone Rocks event to unite community

Baroeg, a key cultural hub in Rotterdam's Lombardijen district, is hosting the second edition of the 'Everyone Rocks' event. The initiative is designed to foster inclusion for people with disabilities, alongside local music and dance enthusiasts. The day is set to feature performances that highlight both the talent and inclusiveness of the community.

The event will kick off with a performance titled 'Iconic World' by the Rotterdam dance company Misiconi, which is known for its inclusive lineup of dancers with and without disabilities. This marks the first collaboration between Baroeg and Misiconi, enhancing the cultural fabric of Lombardijen.

The musical programme for the day includes a variety of pop and rock covers performed by the Niemand Minder Sessieband, consisting of clients from Pameijer, a local support organization for individuals with disabilities. Attendees can expect renditions of classics from bands like KISS, Queen, Johnny Cash, Golden Earring, and CCR.

Additionally, the event will feature karaoke, music lessons provided by SKVR, and a barbecue. The day will conclude with a performance by Scream Tonight, covering hits from rock legends such as AC/DC, Motörhead, ZZ Top, and Twisted Sister.
