Initiated by the Municipality of Holbæk.
12 locations in Holbæk.
The project has been developed in collaboration with the coastal life centre at Holbæk Harbour, the municipality and a public school. Based on Holbæk's local maritime culture and nature, the coastal life centre builds boats, produces rope and sews sails in the sail loft. For this art project, the institution has been inspired by the project's imaginative and creative experiments with local narratives and knowledge of the maritime life that forms the context for Holbæk's harbour environment. The centre's professional staff has assisted the construction and launching of the raft and has worked out the safety instructions for the stay on the raft.
