A Sea Change project at MADE IN Dialogues

KONTEJNER is participating in the initial presentation of the project Adriatic Sea Sources, which marks the start of MADE IN Dialogues as part of the Platform for Contemporary Crafts & Design, that includes experts from the field of arts, design, science, museology and crafts. We are happy to present our program Heard by the Deep (part of KONTEJNER's EU project A Sea Change), which we organized in Split in May 2023. A series of lectures will be held on Tuesday, June 27 in the premises of the Nikola Tesla Technical Museum in Zagreb, starting at 10 a.m.

A total of 15 experts will present their own insights, research, and experience on the use of local raw materials and natural resources in the context of the Adriatic Sea, showing simultaneously approaches in scientific, museological and collaborative practices. The aim of the project is to investigate various aspects of natural, available resources related to the sea, the coast and undersea, and raise questions about the sustainability of their exploitation in the local context.
