About the project

Off Season Art Gardening is an international project (2018-2021). The main purpose is to join artists in the fields: land art, landscape architecture and garden design. It is also to work with audiences in peripheral urban and rural communities to develop cross cultural competence. Within the project we implement land art installations in open public space in the Netherlands, Lithuania and Sweden. Artists from the three countries meet during Artists in Residences and the public is invited to inspiring educational activities like workshops and lectures.
