From July 4 to 9 2016, a group of artists and researchers in the fields of visual arts, photography, writing, urban geography, molecular medicine, industrial design, public space and urban planning talked, ate, drew, biked, and produced new work here in Veere. The participants came to Zeeland from Brazilia/Twente, Amsterdam/Johannes-burg, Utrecht, Serbia/Maastricht, Madrid/Middelburg, Noord-wijkerhout, Eindhoven, and Paris/Middelburg. For two days they attemped to connect to a beach stretch of Dishoek through personal interventions and for another two days they drew ‘what is worth drawing’ in the small city of Veere. Their naive findings were then linked in hindsight to artefacts and stories belonging to the cultural heritage of Zeeland, in an effort to practice a form of backward history. This site, and the accompanying publication, is thus a kaleidoscopic record of the thoughts, talks, findings, and questions that emerged during the week. By nature, these are fragmentary and incomplete. However, they can function as seeds of new ways of thinking about the future of cultural tourism and nature recreation on the Peninsula of Walcheren.
