For our first Creative Departures stop this year, we chose to venture back to Antwerp, Belgium. It is a fitting stop for Gravis, as we have been deeply rooted in the community here for some time. Aside of sponsoring the Antwerp Pro/Am Skate Contest for the past few years, we have been making it a yearly pilgrimage for the skate team to come out to Belgium and the Netherlands. This year we filmed for a few days up the road in Rotterdam which proved to be eventful, visited some better known skate spots in Brussels, then rounded out the trip throwing a three day art show in Antwerp. The art show featured a mixture of Gravis artists and athletes as well as some local artists that were included to bring more of a family vibe to the show. Check out some of the skate spots, restaurants and other places we were hanging on the map below. And yes, there is a red light district in Antwerp. Stay tuned for the next Creative Departures show in Los Angeles this coming February, 2013.
