Extra Practice is a space for working and learning in the North of Rotterdam, shared by five friends who are active in the field of art and design.

The space originated from a desire to create a β€œschool-after-school;” a fruitful environment for working and learning amongst peers, which we were missing after we all finished our Masters in 2019. Within Extra Practice we support each other's individual practices, and organise workshops, presentations and public events to share insights and experiences.

Good Times Bad Times is a radio station founded by Ben, Jack and Kirsten that started out as a community radio in Pension Almonde, and is now broadcasting every other Wednesday from the Extra Practice space.

On Good Times Bad Times we talk to various guests from the creative field about their ways of working and living, as well as host workshops in radio-making and provide a platform for others to broadcast their shows.
