Age of Wonderland 2015: Balancing Green and Fair Food

Age of Wonderland is a programme based on mutual knowledge exchanges between creative practitioners within Hivos’ global network and the creative high-tech community in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.

The 2015 edition (from 17 to 25 October 2015) will be addressing the intertwined and complex issues around our global food system, challenging creative practitioners to reflect upon the processes of food production, consumption and distribution.

Age of Wonderland has invited the following artists, creative thinkers and doers from Hivos’ networks in Indonesia, Latin America and East Africa for a residency in Eindhoven, the Netherlands:

  • Symbat Satybaldieva (Kyrgyzstan)
  • Yoyo Yogasmana (Indonesia)
  • Achmad Fadilla (Indonesia)
  • Arie Syarifuddin (Indonesia)
  • Ahadi Katera (Tanzania)
  • Sari Dennise (Mexico)

Please visit to read more about their specific interest and projects.

During their residency, the creative practitioners will develop their projects and explore the global and social implications of their projects by means of experimentation and exchange of knowledge and ideas. Dutch partner organisations will find counterparts for collaboration within the Dutch (creative) industries.

Through iterations, hands-on workshops and co-creation sessions, the ideas will be shared and presented at Baltan Laboratories (at Natlab on Kastanjelaan 500, Eindhoven) during the Dutch Design Week from 17 to 25 October 2015. If you are in the Netherlands at the time, please visit Natlab during Dutch Design Week.
