About
Get Me is a place for today’s activist. We are a community-driven, Rotterdam-based creative agency with global concerns and local impact. Here, ethics and aesthetics go hand in hand and the context drives the content. With projects such as HIPSTER/MUSLIM, VOTE and Catalyse, Get Me has proven itself as a platform for socially conscious projects that target and bring visibility to the new crop of creative urban youths.
(A)WAKE is the non-profit arm of Get Me. It is a movement composed of artists, designers, writers and entrepreneurs using their skills to take a stand against intolerance, economic precarity and fear of the ‘other.’ We are passionate about navigating the difficult terrain between between art and politics by curating cutting-edge, socially relevant cultural events that shatter stereotypes about race, gender and class. Where (A) WAKE creates a free space for experimentation, reflection and interaction, Get Me shapes profitable collaborations so we can exist without relying only on subsides.

MONO is our new HQ. At day time this space is the extension of your living room: a place to work, reflect and connect. (A)WAKE will host expo’s, talks, panels, dinners and festivals. During the weekend this place transforms into a club for the underground electronics.
