Leeuwarden gets even more colourful with large and small walls becoming the canvas of renowned Frisian and international graffiti artists. In total they’ll create 2018 square metres of street art, in which they deal with old dogmas and create new perspectives for Leeuwarden. Writer's Block is the largest free celebration of public art in the north, in which Leeuwarden street artists are coupled with big names. LJ van Tuinen works with the American John Pugh on a work of art on the Gemeentehuis (town hall), Roy Schreuder provides the City Oasis with a mural along with Flying Fortress (Germany) and Etrs de Retro will work with the German Mr. Woodland on the Stadsschouwburg De Harmonie (theatre). The international artists come to Leeuwarden specifically for the ReOpening.

In addition to these works, Writer's Block organisers Peter Reen and Serge Hollander came up with the ‘Speak Your Truth' component - a place where the spoken word and freedom of expression dominate. They invited the Maltese artist Twitch and the Amsterdam Fake Stencils to this. The Haniasteeg is their playground for the ReOpening.

The first complete edition of Writer's Block will take place in Leeuwarden at the end of June 2019.
