BOARDS OF CHANGE

At first glance, The Skateroom produces premium quality prints of famous artworks on a contemporary medium. Printing works from artists that include Vincent van Gogh, Jean-Michel Basquiat, or Keith Haring, just to name a few, on expertly crafted maple wood skateboards is a savvy way of introducing the masterpieces to today’s streetculture-driven consumers. But The Skateroom is about so much more!

Convinced that our collective future depends upon business ideas becoming a means for building, financing, and implementing systemic solutions to the globe’s most pressing needs, the company challenges the status quo of brand and corporate responsibility, and turns its consumers into active contributors in socially engaged projects.

By implementing a “5:25” business model, The Skateroom donates 5% of its turnover or 25% of the company’s profit from every sale – whichever number is greater. This way, the trailblazing project has already raised over $1,000,000 to fund 37 social skate projects dedicated to empower at-risk youth around the world that even include building entire schools in Afghanistan or South Africa (pictured above).
