About 


Our first edition of the Living Summer School, lasted five days (5-10 September 2021) and invited eleven Belgian and international young creatives with different backgrounds and expertise to reimagine the future of urban waterscapes in Kortrijk.

How can we restore the connection between citizens and the waterscapes they live in,  in playful and meaningful ways?

︎︎︎Stadsboerderij Kortrijk

A modular system for cleaning and filtering water around the farm, paired with a suspended playground which doubles down as a net to catch leaves (main source of water contamination).
