Garden of Peace > Call for proposals
The Peace Gardens project consists in creating around fifteen perennial gardens in 2018 on the theme of peace in the Hauts-de-France region. This new memory trail will pay tribute to the countless deaths on French soil between 1914 and 1918, and bear witness to the number and diversity of the countries involved in this conflict. This project is initiated by the Association Art & gardens – Hauts-de-France and by the First World War Centenary Partnership Program.
Association Art & gardens – Hauts-de-France produces, on the initiative of the Hauts-de-France region, a festival of contemporary gardens in public spaces, in agreement with the French Ministry of Culture. First World War Centenary Partnership Program is a public interest group established in 2012 by the Government for the preparation and implementation of the commemorative program for the First War centenary.
Created by landscapers from countries which fought in the region, these artistic gardens will be grouped in clusters of three to four gardens, each located near Great War memorial sites and memorial tourism routes. These gardens will be created in the spring of 2018 to be presented to the public in summer and inaugurated in autumn 2018, one century after the fighting of the Great War.
There are different calls related to the countries of applicant landscapers and architects: Australia, New Zealand, Wales, Scotland, Morocco, France, Portugal, Belgium, Canada, England, Italy, Germany, Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Production cost and related travels are covered among other costs.
