Over the past year and a half, we have been part of Innovatielabs, an initiative by Creative Industries Fund NL and CLICKNL. Researcher Stefanie van Zal has been following four of the collaborations we set up to assess what works well and what doesn’t. The aim of this research is not only to gain insights into the effective factors of these collaborations but also to share these lessons with the rest of the cultural sector.
Starting from October 21st, we present the results of this research at the Dutch Design Week. During this event, we will also showcase the work of Anemoon Fokkinga and Rik Laging: Aquatic Fauna Research Lab (A.F.R.L) Chapter I: Glowing and Growing. Anemoon and Rik have been collaborating for a long time and will present a mysterious laboratory at DDW, featuring extraordinary deep-sea creatures that didn’t succumb but adapted to a changing world, along with plastic waste, radiation, and more.
