HOUSE OF VANS BERLIN

Vans, every skater’s love brand will host an exciting event this coming weekend in Berlin. The successful format House Of Vans brings „Off The Wall“ to life and strikes with a memorable experience for attendants.

Workshops, Art Installations, Open Skate Sessions, a Community Street Market and live Musical Performances by Octavian and Nothing but Thieves.

As it is open for the public, the event offers the ideal opportunity to get a glimpse into the world of skating. A cultural hub of sorts that will take place at Ewerk and celebrates creativity, street culture and action sports.

If you happen to be a girl or a young woman that never stood on a board before, you can now seize the opportunity and attend Vans’ signature Get On Board girls skate clinic. A workshop that will make it easy to fall in love with the sport and help learn the technique. Also, the history of Berlin will be paid respect through an exhibition that highlights the cultural heritage of West and East Berlin.

 

“Berlin is the hub to a long history of art, music and skateboarding, that is very much aligned to Vans’ own foundations,” said Simon Charlesworth, Vans’ Director of Brand Marketing EMEA. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for House of Vans to come to life in alongside a unique community that continues to inspire us.”

Once at the event you’ll also be able to see the rising skate Star Lizzie Armanto live and indulge in a uniquely-created indoor skatepark and open skate sessions. The event pop-up will kick off this Friday, the 29th of March and will continue until Sunday the 31st.
