Titus Wybenga

Two years ago, Titus Wybenga and his colleagues of De Staalslagerij were approached by Rotterdam based youth worker Lorenz Elstak. His goal was to involve the residents of Katendrecht in the design of a new sports route along the neighbourhood’s quay. What appeared to be a straightforward job, became a long lasting project with unexpected challenges on the way. A Kaap Workout festival, numerous workshops and small events have led to 5 sport objects for young and old. Titus will take us through his insights creating the ‘Copacabana’ of Rotterdam. He is deeply engaged in social design and co-founded design and production studio De Staalslagerij.
