Theme: Water - Land.
Windmills, dikes, polders, ditches and channels; for nearly thousand years the Dutch built all these artworks to keep their feet dry.
The majority of their country is situated below sea-level and the battle against the water will be a never ending story.
The effort to defend land against water or over flooding rivers is a worldwide challenge.
Think about for example; Venice, Bangladesh and New Orleans.
However this merging between water and land determines also the beauty of the landscape.
Collection of the lace :
The lace should be collected between 17.00 to 18.00 hours on Saturday 11th August 2018 after the closing of the Lace Event, by showing an identity document and a photograph similar to the one used for identification purposes.
