Back Street

The new exhibition Back Street is a literary adventure for Young Adults. Young people discover, encounter and create stories in order to experience the power of literature.

Back Street leads you through dark alleys to ten different spaces. Come gamble on literary stories in the Casino, meet contemporary writers in the Gym or learn to seduce with language in the Limousine.  In the Bunker you play an escaperoom about exciting stories and at the Bakfiets you get to work on your own song or rap. In the Tattoo Shop you expose yourself by reacting to situations from your favorite book. Ready? A personal tattoo will be put directly on your arm by tattoo artist Sjon!


In Back Street you'll meet writers such as Khalid Boudou, Marieke Lucas Rijneveld, Jason Reynolds and Angie Thomas, Gershwin Bonevacia and Elten Kiene.



After your visit to Back Street, you will be sent personal book tips by email based on all the games you played.


Recommended age: 14 to 20 years



Please note that Back Street is not available in English.
