The SITA After movie, still keeps bringing the heat

In the Netherlands, there is never a guarantee that it will be warm or dry in September. However on the 25th and 26th of September 2021, there was not only a pleasant temperature for graffiti writers to paint in, but it was also burning hot in De Berenkuil for the 12th annual Step In The Arena graffiti festival, presented by the DYNAMO team. With yet another epic lineup of national and international artists, SITA was again heavily visited (under strict guidelines) by the participating artists, graffiti and street art enthusiasts, as well as the usual array of locals that use the Berenkuil location as pedestrian and cycling thorofare through their city.

With its usual vigor, there is a space for every skill level with some of Europe’s Kings and Queens, leading the way in the presence of some of the hottest up-and-coming juniors.
