Land Art Live

The art project Land Art Live addresses our relationship with water in the era of climate change. The project is developed in Storkriket, an area which works for sustainable development within Unesco's program for biosphere areas and where Lake Vombsjön is an important source of drinking water for southwestern Skåne. 

In Land art, temporary works of art in natural materials are created at site in the landscape. Land Art Live this takes place on the shores of Vombsjön during August and September 2024. Follow the development of the program which will include workshops, artists' work processes and bus tours!

Water - a question of the future

At the center of climate change are water issues. Despite both drought and floods no later than the summer of 2023 and floods in the winter of 2024, we who live in Skåne are still spared from water disasters on the scale that Southern Europe and other parts of the world are increasingly affected by. The only thing we know for sure is that even in Sweden, fresh water will become an increasingly important resource and that the costs of dealing with droughts and floods will increase in the future. So how do we relate to water, this life-giver, destroyer and the origin of everything? Welcome to take part in art processes that put water at the center in support of Agenda 2030.

Agenda 2030 subgoal 6: Clean water and sanitation

Water is a basic prerequisite for all living things on earth, and thus also a prerequisite for human health and sustainable development. Water is also a prerequisite for the world's food production and energy production, and a lack of water can therefore be a cause of conflict, both within and between countries. But water is not necessarily a source of conflict, water resources can also act as a unifying force that strengthens cooperation and creates solutions for peace.

Biosphere candidacy Storkriket - culture as a support process for sustainable development

The ARNA project Land Art Live is being developed in Storkriket, which is a candidate to become a UNESCO biosphere reserve. Through collaboration and local engagement, Biosphere Reserves are testing and demonstrating new strategies, ideas and actions for a more sustainable future. Today there are over 700 biosphere reserves in the world. Storkriket aims to be Sweden's eighth biosphere reserve in 2025 and has designated culture as a support process in the development.
