European Landart Network
The European Landart Network (ELAN) is an international project, started in summer 2013, supported by the Culture Programme of the European Union and the Lower Saxony region of Germany. The idea is born in October 2012, when the initiator of the network, the German Springhornhof Foundation, invited Land Art organisations to a Partnercolloquium at Springhornhof. The network is officially founded at August 2013 with four partner organisations from Germany, Italy, Poland and UK. To evolve this network there will be several inter-European meetings and symposia and art projects or programmes in different countries.
The purpose of the network is to connect and promote Land Art artists, academics, experts, students and organisations of several European countries and will endeavour to increase public visibility of Land Art in rural areas and cultural landscapes. For that we hope to win further Land Art organisations in future.
