A platform for interaction between art and science

Living Art Lab

Science and culture both contribute individually to a city’s liveability. Interaction between the two can provide new insights and innovative solutions. Marineterrein Amsterdam provides a platform to promote this interaction while also involving the public, in the form of the Living Art Lab.

  • Short

    Living Art Lab is the overarching cultural platform of Marineterrein Amsterdam, which offers space for creative projects associated with developments and experiments at Marineterrein.

    Interaction between science and creativity leads to the new insights and innovative solutions that we need to make cities liveable. To promote this interaction and involve the public in developments and experiments at Marineterrein, Marineterrein is busy working on a cultural programme known as the Living Art Lab. 

    This programme invites students, artists, designers, and scientists to dig deeper into the area’s DNA and present work that shines a new light on the present, the past, and future of this unusual area of the city. 

    The programme will take place at different locations at Marineterrein, including De Schietbaan and the outdoor area at the end of the site, as well as online.

  • Facts

    The Living Art Lab comprises multiple components:

    Cityscapes Artistic Research

    Buitenbroedplaats

    The Buitenbroedplaats New Art programme provides space to artists looking for freedom to experiment, test, and do things differently. Sustainable, future-proof development of Marineterrein requires new insights and approaches. Buitenbroedplaats appeals to young, creative talent and new and innovative artists, who would normally find it difficult to find space in the city for collaborative thought about the future of the city and the issues faced by cities around the world.

    An important part of Buitenbroedplaats is its solid grounding and connection with the city and surrounding neighbourhoods. Marineterrein has long been an enclosed enclave. At Buitenbroedplaats, investigations are taking place into how Marineterrein can retain its unique character and, at the same time, be an inclusive part of Amsterdam. How can local residents and Amsterdam residents more widely, of different backgrounds and ages, contribute to development of Marineterrein?
