One of the prettiest Kál Basin villages, Salföld has received the opportunity to host a new initiative and take part in the ECoC VEB2023 programme as a Cult Network base. The venue is a long-abandoned sandmine site, where cultural events are planned to present the personalities of local artistic life and the creative industry. The ˮMine” will in the long run be turned into a monumental outdoor installation, as it is intended to become home to land art works in the upcoming years. It was this concept and ideas of a number of cultural events that secured backing from Cult Network VEB2023.
Art courses, concerts, applied art shows and sessions, theatre events, literary evenings and community programmes are going to take place in the sand of the Mine, where children and adults can have encounters with these by gaining their own activity-based experiences: they will not be reduced to the status of external observers in the lines of the audience. Organizers would like to implement most programmes in a way which involves visitors and gives lasting memories as well as added value to these meetings with arts and creative acts. All this in an environment where closeness to nature plus an open and flexibly adjustable space provide enough freedom to do so.
