Pottporus has been a registered association with its headquarters in Herne since 2007. Promoting, producing and communicating urban art as one of the most socially relevant art forms of the present is a central concern of the association. Pottporus forms the roof for the independent dance company Renegade , the biennial URBAN ART festival and the hip-hop dance academy. In 2009 the Junge Pottporus was founded, from whose work the hip-hop ensemble and youth festival HipYo! emerge. With its profile, Pottporus aims to open up sustainable perspectives for actors of urban art from the fields of WORT TANZ BILD KLANG in order to develop and professionalise themselves artistically.
