Soil & Land Alliance International – Activities at Temesvar, Vukovar and Budapest


On October 6, at Temesvar in Romania a workshop on the topic of „Painting with the Colours of the Earth" took place within the framework of an event of the Constantin Brancusi Cultural Association and the Association of Writers. Furthermore, at the international project meeting in Budapest, an expressive common piece of art painted with soil colours has come into existence.

Dr. Harald Kutzenberger of the IAD (International Association for Danube Research) as an official representative of the SONDAR (Soil Strategy Network in the Danube Region) network and his team inspired persons interested with tips and tricks around the topic of painting with soil colours.
