Age of Wonderland is a programme based on mutual knowledge exchanges between creative practitioners within Hivos’global network and the creative high-tech community in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
During the artist’s residency of six weeks in September and October 2015, creative practitioners will develop their projects and explore the global and social implications of their projects by means of experimentation and exchange of knowledge and ideas.
Dutch partner organisations will find counterparts for collaboration within the Dutch creative industries. H hospitality and conviviality are also a hallmark of the Age of Wonderland programme. Through iterations, hands-on workshops and co-creation sessions, these ideas will be shared and presented at Natlab during the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, 17 to 25 October 2015.
