Showroom MAMA is a presentation-institution at the Witte de Withstraat in Rotterdam that shows contemporary art. MAMA shows various exhibitions of young artists. Showroom MAMA is supported by a group young volunteers that wish to learn more about the creative sector. MAMA calls their volunteers Rookies and gives them the changes to learn more by doing. MAMA is for them the changes to make their first steps and projects in the creative sector.
