STARTS4Water Residencies announced

STARTS4Water has announced the winners of the open call for 10 artist residencies addressing new water realities. At V2_ we'll welcome Mark IJzerman and the Center for Genomic Gastronomy.

10 artists or artistic collectives have been chosen for the STARTS4Water residencies that will kick-start a series of collaborative processes and generate projects that raise awareness and offer concrete solutions for regional water challenges in Europe.

Following an open call that was launched in July 2021, the STARTS4Water Consortium received 294 eligible applications from 56 different countries, out of which 39,3% came from Europe and 60,7% from non-Europe based artists. The average age of the applicants was 42 years old.

Each residency will address a different region-specific water management challenge and relates to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (especially SDG6 and SDG14). The challenges have been defined by the Consortium partners with the support of a regional expert network, including digital experts, entrepreneurs, regional leading art and research institutions, specialists in digital transformation, administration and public governance.

The STARTS4Water residencies will lead to tangible artworks that develop knowledge and raise awareness of water challenges, or to digital applications & processes that contribute to the local development of sustainable water use and management.

At V2_ we will welcome Mark IJzerman and the Center for Genomic Gastronomy (Zack Denfeld, Cathrine Kramer, Emma Conley). Mark IJzerman will work on his project Biodiversity in the Port of Rotterdam; the project of The Center for Genomic Gastronomy is entitled Drought in Waterland.
