LAND (Land stewards AND artists) project was a 2-year Creative Europe cooperation project involving four arts partners. They all were exploring new ways for environmental organisations, cultural operators and artists to work together. LAND was led by Oerol Festival in the Netherlands. Partners were Activate Performing Arts in the UK, Le Citron Jaune in France and Artpolis / PLACC Festival in Hungary.
LAND partners worked in conjunction with key land stewards /
environmental organisation in each country, to offer the landscape as a
field of experimentation in the hope of reuniting what is often seen as
disunited or separate; humanity and its environment, art and nature,
science and experience.
LAND forged the creation of a connected European network between landstewards and artists and built the foundation of a strong collaborative future for this specialist field of work. LAND was delivered through three core aims:
LAND “offered” the landscape as a field of experimentation in the hope of reuniting what is often seen as disunited or separate; humanity and its environment, art and nature, science and experience.
