The Municipality of Levadia is hosting a Digital Lab during our first production residency for Memory of Water. Opening the event, Mayor Mrs. Yiota Poulou will present regeneration plans for the River Erkyna and address the challenges posed by the artistic team during our last research visit. The event will also include contributions from partner cities and address our core question: what’s next for waterfront heritage zones in post-industrial European cities?
Digital Labs will also be hosted in Limerick, Gdańsk and Govan. If you have post-industrial waterfront heritage zones in your city, and especially if you are experimenting with innovative solutions to address issues like gentrification, non-place/any-place construction or environmental impacts, then please contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org or your local partner.
