The BGirl Timeline!
– HeartBreak Hotel X B-girl Sessions X IBE –
The B-Girl Timeline is an ongoing research project created for the past, current and next generation to have an overview on what B-Girls started when and what they they brought into the scene. On august 1 we stand outside the Heart Break Hotel at IBE. So B-Girls, come on over and put your name and tag on the map!
About the Bgirl Timeline Project:
It started as an idea of Tyrone van der Meer (organiser of IBE) and was supported by Aruna Vermeulen (organiser Heart Break Hotel, part of IBE). A physical timeline where event-goers can add their names and knowledge to the historical tracing of B-Girls over the past few decades. The project has turned into a reseach project for us B-Girl Sessions.
As Aruna said in an artikel van RedBull BC One: “This project had them research their history so they understood what came before them—in Holland and worldwide. Now these three B-Girls not only know the history but created the base of the timeline,” said Aruna Vermeulen. “This knowledge can now be shared with others.”
At IBE we will be there with a physical timeline to which we can add names and information. After IBE we will share this information here online so it will also be digitally available. Follow us on social media to stay updated!
