The Dutch Minister of Infrastructure and the Environment, Melanie Schultz van Haegen, received the first RiverArt brochure on the 10th of May in Dordrecht. The Minister visited Dordrecht together with her fellow foreign Ministers to talk about water safety and climate adaptation. A perfect moment to draw the Ministers attention towards the RiverArt-project.
Together with national and international artists, Mothership, Observatorium and RiverArt will be creating around 20 iconic artworks in the coming 10 years. The artworks will be realized on the banks of the river ‘Noord’ between Rotterdam and Dordrecht. Alongside this river the Dutch fight against water started and created a huge economic impulse for the region. The artworks will not only bind the region and make it a nicer place to live, work and recreate, it will also call attention to its rich history.
