During November and December, the six participating river and water cities of Stockholm, Limerick, Levadia, Ostend, Govan and Gdańsk invite you to join in discussions about the implications for future cultural planning.
Our contributors include artists Ira Brami, Iwona Zając, Jonas Myrstrand, Mary Conroy, Siegfried Vynck and t s Beall, who will be joined by academics, writers and cultural policy makers , among others Franco Bianchini, François Mattarasso and Lia Ghilardi.
Memory of Water is an artist-led project exploring post-industrial cultural heritage on waterfront in the context of urban planning and community development. Over two years, the participating partners from six countries(Intercult in Sweden, Stad Ostend in Belgium, the Municipality of Levadia in Greece, Nadbaltyckie Centrum Kultury in Poland, Fablevision in Scotland, and Ormston House in Ireland) will collaborate on twenty-three interconnected activities including four city labs, six international residencies, and a filmed documentary.
