Coloco – PeriFertil
On Saturday 23 September you can join an (inter)active discovery tour in the periphery with the French design collective Coloco. They will take you on gardening trail according to their distinctive concept of Fertile Mobile. In the Scheutbos area an explanation of the project “Metropolitan Living Room”* (with Gilles Clément of DEV Space) will be given, a research project that Coloco realized in the context of Metropolitan Landscapes. Subsequently, the wetlands of Kattebroek are to be discovered. Their method: field research, yet on a human scale and from multiple points of view which transforms the art of gardening into street art. At the end of the trail, a festive gardening moment takes place on the Hunderenveld.
