Program Description

We offer a seminar and a workshop as part of the experience. The artist will learn about the area from lokal people. The artists will work with and in nature for a week with their own way of expression with the natural elements on the site. We have a vast, but limited area. On the last day of the Biennale, July the 9th, there will be an exhibition tour where the artists present their work in situ to the general public. We want people to meet, interact and make creative, long lasting network across the borders.
