The Applied Landart Map embodies a belief that while digital media can collapse the geographical distance that has long separated rural people from themselves and their urban partners, such technology must work to bridge human relationships.
We understand Applied Landart as the integrated design and the realization of cultural and artistic works for communication which uses and combines elements of many art and culture forms. These activities deal and take place in rural areas and cultural landscapes in Europe and support their preservation and development.
The map provides you an overview of existing actors, activities and proposals and you can filter them in different categories .With these categories users of the map can easily filter actors/activities or proposal for their search and interest or to find suitable partner for new projects or just for inspirations.
While this Map is both a resource and an archive, it is also a roadmap to the building of regional, inter-disciplinary, and cross-sector consortiums — and to an expansion of honest dialogue between a range of communities, individuals, and institutions who, until this point, had never been in conversation. Through creating profiles of your initiatives (actors) and by showing past and especially coming activities – so by telling your stories, activities and visions, we gather to illustrate the complex and irrefutable vitality of the arts and cultural work within our rural places and how important it is for communicating and even generating values and meanings for a qualitative development of these regions.
