Today, in many European regions initiatives and projects related to landart already exist. In different forms of arts and culture they communicate the benefits and the values of rural areas and cultural landscapes as an important cultural heritage of the people in Europe.




All belong to cultural landscape development

Since some thousand years people have worked within our unique European landscapes as well as they formed it. This process will continue in future. Many people involved often are not aware of their impact and do not perceive themselves as cultural workers or artists. The sustainability of their actions does include not only ecological aspects - aesthetic is also an important component of the sustainability of their work and culture. The mentioned people perceive rural areas and cultural landscape in aesthetical dimensions every day. Therefore it is very important that they preserve and develop an aesthetic perception and cultural awareness. An example: A farmer is not just the producer of food paying attention to ecological regulations and laws of nature and environmental protection – farmers do also influence the culture and aesthetic of rural areas and cultural landscapes in big scale.




Dialogues between many actors and disciplines

In culture and landart projects and initiatives, there are many actors from different disciplines and levels involved: professionals and amateurs, scientists and practical workers, artist and cultural workers, students and pupils, inhabitants and externals, old and young people. The joint processes of the design and realization of cultural and art works are used to find solutions for the future development and the role of the rural areas and cultural landscapes for its inhabitants, economic actors (e.g from agriculture, forestry, tourism, energy etc.), politicians, visitors and particularly their next generations.




Missing Exchange between initiatives and actors

Currently, only a few of the initiatives respectively the actors exchange their experiences and artists, cultural workers and other actors are working together in this field, for example in the project Euro Land Art. Today many more initiatives, projects and particularly actors in this field do exist in Europe. These have currently no or just a little exchange or joint activities. Additionally certain European rural regions, organizations and actors are interested in an exchange and in transferring the results, methods and experiences of the existing initiatives and projects in this field. Furthermore it is an important task to transfer the idea of communicating the benefits of rural areas and the value of cultural landscapes as a common heritage to as many European regions as possible.




Creating a Network for exchange experiences on Applied Landart

The results of the ‘Euro Land Art’ project underlined that exchange of knowledge and experience is a great benefit for all involved people, organizations and regions. The joint cultural activities and artistic works support the cultural dialogue and the future development and realization of more joint activities. They are suitable to revitalize thinking about rural culture and arts in an increasingly urban world. Applied landarts are a great possibility to find the joint cultural roots of European rural regions. Only by going this way it will be possible to develop a joint but differentiated culture and arts in rural areas and cultural landscapes. Therefore it is very important to support the further development of the existing exchange and the further networking of actors, organizations and regions of this field.
