  • Description

    Description

    We are a foundation specialized in the development and execution of sustainable, social, artistic, environmental and innovative projects,. We're a multidisciplinary internationally operating non profit organisation attracting designers, technicians, students, engineers, artists, businesses, academics, and others who are interested in the crossover between science, nature, technology, and creativity. Every year we welcome researchers, bio-professionals and students to work with us. The changing population ensures that our laboratory can act as the breeding space for the crossover innovation it stands for.

    We recently relocated to a beautiful military bunker complex build by the German army during the Second World War in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. A new location with 1,5 hectares of space, situated in a forest but steps away from creative district Strijp-S Eindhoven, where culture, science and nature go hand in hand. At our location we are realizing a sustainable, fully self-supporting location, applying a circular approach to all of our resources and energy as well as our waste materials. Our Bio-Art forest will be a crossover hotspot where science, arts and nature meet: there is a fully functional hybrid laboratory, numerous ateliers and nature is right outside the door.

    A response can sometimes take a while these months because we are very busy.

    UPDATE
    Due to the corona, we were unable to respond for a long time and were unable to offer places. We will start with this again carefully. We are looking for people who can stay for a longer period of time (minimum from 2 weeks).

    Since our activities as an organisation are so varied, the possibilities don't really stop anywhere. We're creating a diverse community and we're interested to hear from anyone! Here's a selection of our activities that you could help us with:

    - Caring for our animals. We have two dogs, two cows, three horses, geese, chickens, sheep, bees and a pig keeping us company!
    - Gardening and landscape maintenance. Our 1,5 hectare piece of forest requires quite some maintenance and care. On top of that, we are planning to plant a resources forest for our self-suffiecient location and laboratory.
    - Assistance in expositions and other public events. We host an all-year-round program of public activities like (art) expositions, debates, workshops, guided tours, etc. One of the examples is our participation in the international event the Dutch Design Week Eindhoven, where thousands of people visit our crossover exposition.
    - Giving workshops and masterclasses for children. Also part of our program, we organise workshops on the crossover of arts and science as an extracurricular activity for primary and secondary schools.
    - Help making our location self-sufficient and ecologically sustainable. We're fully off-the-grid!
    - Helping with the refurbishment of our location. Before we moved in two years ago, the location had been abandoned for a few decades, so it needs some work!
