Converging sites

Converging sites involves (1) contemporary artists that will collaborate with local specialists and communities, in employing methods from (2) heritage studies (mainly archaeology and folklore) to explore (3) the respective roles of landscape and narrative in the constructing of local histories and identities, specifically in the wider regions of Veszprém, Hungary and Leeuwarden, Fryslan, The Netherlands. Converging sites explores the regional landscape, historical artefacts and concepts of cultural and immaterial heritage through artistic research and community involvement. We aim for a lasting impact on participants and audiences in both regions, through actively involving local communities, stimulating cultural exchange and creating opportunities for emerging artists.
