This walk allows you to exercise, explore and see Rotterdam with different eyes and meet new people. Expect a nice walking route through the city. Art makes you move, that’s why Art Index Rotterdam loves to take you on a walk. It’s healthy, you have the time to enjoy the city while looking around, see great art in public space and connect with people. Rotterdam is a great city to discover on foot, as there is so much to see. Walking has common ground with all kinds of parts of the city and urban development. It is about the design of public space and mobility, but also about people's health, economic vitality and the quality of life in the city. / 'walking the talk' met de ‘10.000 steps - Art Walk in 010’. Een eenvoudig concept, stap voor stap, volgen we de kunst tot we de tienduizendste stap hebben bereikt. Verwacht een mooie wandelroute door de stad. We laten jou met andere ogen kijken, ontdekken verrassende plekken in Rotterdam en je ontmoet nieuwe mensen. Wandelen is gezond, je hebt de tijd om van de stad te genieten terwijl je om je heen kijkt. Geweldige kunst in de openbare ruimte zien en in contact komen met nieuwe mensen. Rotterdam is een geweldige stad om wandelend te ontdekken, want er is zoveel te zien. In de komende jaren zal het nog aantrekkelijker worden voor voetgangers, omdat de stad een voorbeeld wil zijn voor stedelijke ontwikkeling. Het gaat over de inrichting van de openbare ruimte en mobiliteit, maar ook over de gezondheid van mensen, de economische vitaliteit en de kwaliteit van leven in de stad.

SO COOL! to celebrate this Women's Day with a special 10.000 Steps Art Walk Rotterdam along with great art by female artists. The art takes us to a studio, gallery, public space and the street. An interesting route that starts in Kralingen crosses Crooswijk and stops in the Old North. Unique city experience, by looking selectively and marvelling at the impact or share of women in the current art field. Meet inspiring artists and/or her work. We philosophize about what we see and wonder why we wave to so many things in the distance!

This 4th walk starts at 11:00am with a short visit to the expo In occasion of International Women's Day. A group show curated by Angeline Hagendijk, with work by artists: Sam Cruden, Hillegon Brunt, Hester Zagt, Max Wijlacker, Astrid de Pauw, Rolina Nell, Ineke Hekking, Angeline Hagendijk, Jeanette Ephraim and Pien van der Beek. Embrace the women's day theme Freedom with a sculpture by Truus Menger-Oversteegen. A coffee break in a yet undiscovered place in Kralingen. The cause makes this route unusual! Straight through residential areas, along with greenery, water features and the work of Katinka Lampe, Wafae Ahalouch el Keriasti, Sylvia Overheul, Loeki Metz, Anuli Croon, Vera Nederlof, Susanne Kriemann, Charlotte Schleiffert, Natlia Rak and expect to see some unpredicted works and things to inspire.

Around 7.3 kilometres, in the Old North, we reach the 10,000th step. For a perfect end of this women's day, we kindly invite you to join us after the walk. We take the tram to Rotterdam-West to visit the free expo 'about A woman' - 'girlhood'. See work by artists: Astrid Moors, Debbie Voerman, Guda Koster, Hinke Schreuders, Ingrid van der Hoeven, Maritsa van Luttikhuizen, Netty van Osch and Rolina Nell and enjoy the round table discussion between Marja van Putten (artist) and Trudi van Zadelhoff (guest curator Stedelijk Museum Schiedam).
