Memory of Water Project - A Series of Webinars

Memory of Water is an artist-led project exploring post-industrial waterfront heritage in the context of urban planning and community development. Funded by Creative Europe and with local support in six partner cities, the project was developed and delivered by over two years from 2018 - 2020.

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 Limerick, Ireland collaborated on 23 interconnected activities including four city labs, six international residencies, and a filmed documentary.

Artists worked with citizens, community groups, politicians, urban planners and other stakeholders to create inclusive events and artistic interventions. The full programme of 23 interconnected activities in the Memory of Water project embraced the three priorities of the Creative Europe Co-operations programme: audience development, capacity building and transnational mobility.
