Bauhaus of the Seas Sails kicks-off on 1 & 2 February

The Bauhaus of the Seas Sails project officially kicked-off on 1 and 2 February in Lisbon.

The two-day kick-off event, which included inspiring presentations and an artistic performance, a 3D printer demonstration and a regenerative meal, gathered more than 130 participants in Hub Criativo do Beato and Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian. 18 partners from 8 European cities, ranging from cultural institutions and design schools to research centres and municipalities, joined forces to demonstrate solutions for climate neutrality.

Envisioning a triangle of sustainability, inclusion and design, the project will focus on how reimagining our relationship with nature in coastal cities and communities fosters healthier oceans, seas and other bodies of water.

Between presentations on solutions for future coastal cities, artists Evy Jokhova and Jamie Allen invited participants to a performance that reflects from the shellfish tasting the importance of sea resources for human beings. “As humans, we need mussels. They are quite precious in different ways – they filter, they feed themselves and develop their own home.” referred to artist multi-disciplinary Evy Jokhova.
