Creating Land, Back to the Beginning Festival, Appingedam – 2015


The project office helps students carry out projects in practice. Various jobs are carried out for different institutions and companies in the north. The students are assisted by the coordinators from the office, and an instructor or an external advisor. 

I developed a ritual for the festival in Appingedam with a small group of students and local artists during a seminar. Appingedam and the region are suffering from earthquakes and a shrinking economy. With the project ‘Creating Land’ we helped visitors at the festival look at their landscape in a different way. They expressed their ideas, cares and emotions out in images.
