URBAN ACTION CLINIC, 13 - 21 march, festival (im)Possible futures , Vooruit, Ghent
Maria Lucia Cruz Correia is the initiator of the project. It is a collaboration project between artists and scientists. More info on the above links.
The clinic proposes solutions for ecological disorders in the city: it facilitates actions, attitudes, rituals and cures: a re-bound between nature, the city and human body.
The main focus is pollution in urban environments therefore we provide information about anti-pollution plants, bio-remediation techniques and if you bring a plant we can also provide measurement of the air quality in your environment.
