sense of place & Lwd2018 will bring the Frisian Wadden landscape to life


Sense of Place is one of the supporting principles in the Leeuwarden Capital of Culture 2018 programme. Joop Mulder, founder and creative director of Oerol, contributed to Leeuwarden’s winning bid book, which included Sense of Place from the start.

In cooperation with Lwd2018, work will be carried out in the coming years on the realisation of a number of cultural-landscape projects. After a test phase during one or more editions of the Oerol festival, these will acquire permanent places in the Frisian Wadden region.

Lwd2018 presented the first of these projects during Oerol 2014 and 2015, in the form of an exhibition at the Sense of Place Showroom. During both festival editions, visitors could talk to Lwd2018 about the underlying objective of bringing the Frisian Wadden area to life.
