50 years E17 – Open Call for Proposals of Artists, Designers & Makers

Posted on: 17. August 2022


In 1973, the Belgian part of the E3 motorway, now E17, was completed. Intermunicipal organisation Leiedal, the regional developer for South West Flanders, wishes to single out this anniversary, along with various partners such as heritage organisation erfgoed zuidwest, roads and traffic agency AWV, Designregio Kortrijk and the local councils. Together, we dive into the motorway’s history, exploring the changing view on our once fossil-fuel-driven world. Simultaneously, we examine new future-proof alternatives, aiming to connect citizens, businesses, policy-makers and officers in a look back and ahead. We will be highlighting the industrious landscape along the motorway in a particular manner by way of artistic and scenic interventions from June to October of 2023. The motorway interventions are part of a wider summer programme of activities.

This call is specifically about the realisation of a festival flag and landscape interventions and outlines the course of the procedure.

High-quality artistic interventions 

Leiedal proposes a number of strips along the motorway in business estate areas where an artistic intervention might create added value. Project files containing information on these locations will be provided. As such, the locations are suggestions. Others may be proposed by the candidates and added as alternatives (upon agreement of the owners).

 RESPOND BEFORE 16.09.2022
