Rotterdam houses top museums such as Boijmans Van Beuningen, the Kunsthal Rotterdam and the Nederlands Fotomuseum. Internationally acclaimed festivals such as the International Film Festival Rotterdam and the Art Rotterdam Week attract thousands of visitors each year. Noted for its street art, sculptures and design, Rotterdam is becoming a magnet for urban travellers with a taste for contemporary art.
Rotterdam is home to many designers such as Richard Hutten, Susan Bijl and Sabine Marcelis. Joep van Lieshout was considered a pioneer when he started Atelier van Lieshout in the M4H dock area over thirty years ago. The area is changing swiftly, attracting more creative companies and designers. In 2015 the acclaimed Studio Roosegaarde also moved to M4H.
