WEBSR2 Upgrade project:
Competition "Wind energy art"


Aim of the SB-project "Upgrade" and the related international competition is to initiate an EU-wide campaign that will attract the peoples interest in and sympathy for wind energy by creating positive symbols to be put in relation to this energy source. For this purpose, the contest "Wind energy art" was initiated by the project team, based on joining the technological and artistic competences that are represented by our special partner structure. Combining these two perspectives and ways of working will not only lead to interesting art objects, but also involve very different networks, thus reaching a new dimension of public awareness - for the competition, the objects and, via all this, for wind energy. In the end of the nomination processes, there will be 3 durably installed wind energy art objects - one in every partner city, with clear reference to each other, thus, demonstrating also their international dimension.

Gdansk: The wind art object installation in Gdansk is finalized in June 2013 - the solemn inauguration will take place on 13.6.2013 at the Ronald-Reagan-Park. Please, click here for details ... »
