The connection of Wilderness and Arts is something that is dear to our hearts. Not only have we started a project involving teenager in writing and performing RAP Songs about wilderness, but we inspired by the En Plein Project in the Scotchman’s Peaks Wilderness in the US and have started to develop projects aimed at getting artists into the wilderness. The Austrian government has funded several similar projects already including a great Coffeetable book on the Austrian Nationalparks and a Nationalparks Austria Fashion Show.

The EU is also interested in connecting temporary arts and wilderness as can be seen with a project running 2012-2015, where 10 dance groups each went on 2 x 3 weeks stay in small communities in five Nordic and Baltic countries.
