Rotterdam has produced many female top athletes and still does so today. For example Bettie Stöve, Nelli Cooman, Leontien van Moorsel and Fatima Moreira de Melo, but also young talents like kickboxer Amira Tahri.
Heijmerink Wagemakers was responsible for the project management, engineering and realisation of this active exhibition, designed by NorthernLight. Girlpower is a transformative exhibition geared towards getting young visitors moving.
With the exhibition Girlpower, Rotterdam Museum gives the city’s sports heroines their deserved gallery of honour while taking a social stand. Every aspect of the scheme – the urban look and feel, iconic photography, empowering videos, activating quotes, and playfully designed interactive sports courts – will stimulate young people to move. Set to be the most active exhibition of the year, Girlpower is open to the public until 8 March 2020.
