We use the power of art to expand our creative powers to connect with the planet on which we live. As artists and relative outsiders we can reflect on the problems the world is facing today in order to invoke progress and encourage change. Verdronken Land (Drowned Lands, 2019) was our first project on climate change: in June 2019 several artists and more than 25 speakers shared their knowledge about water in our pop-up museum and exchanged information for possible collaborations in the future.
Later, we initiated WaterWalks: an international project to raise awareness about the state of our rivers through art, citizen science, data visualization and science. WaterWalks is a growing database gathering both scientific water-quality measurement and subjective impressions of the rivers. Check out the latest news and upcoming walks on waterwalks.nl.
LUDWIG is part of the UNESCO Global Network of Watermuseums.
