LOCKWOOD presents the documentary Just Like Being There (Scout Shannon, 2012). In the gig poster community, creating artwork is more than just a career - it is a way of life. These artists are at the forefront of an expansion of the gig poster genre. In a community with strong roots, dating back to the 1960s, this expansion is controversial - refreshing to some, sacrilegious to others.

Since June 2014 THE BOOKSTORE, a community-project that houses creatives in collaboration with housing associations Ymere and Stadsgenoot, is working in the Reimerswaalbuurt in Osdorp with the project LOCKWOOD. In collaboration with Ymere the project houses 20 artists in the Schoonboomstraat and Willemskerkestraat.
LOCKWOOD houses designers, artists, writers and musicians. A group within which a continuous exchange of expertise and talent takes place. The participants of the project actively work in the neighbourhood in exchange for an affordable rent. In this light, LOCKWOOD organises various activities in two project spaces: the LOCKWOOD Projectspace and Het Reimertje. For more information about the activities visit our website or Facebookpage.
