The C.O.A.L. project
The C.O.A.L. project works on the changing mining landscape and the heritage interest of this landscape, from the Nord-Pas de Calais to the Silesia. It's going beyond borders with the exchange of knowledge and practices, science and art, de-sectorising forms of culture, creating an original and unifying space for interprofessional intercultural dialogue on the theme of mining landscape. C.O.A.L. is realized under the responsibility of the Museum of Natural History in Lille in cooperation with partners in Upper Silesia and Ruhr. C.O.A.L is part of the European Culture Programme 2007-2013, granted by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency.

COAL: artistic views on post-industrial landscapes. The basin minier in Nord-Pas Calais/ FR, the Katowice conurbation/ PL and the Ruhrgebiet/ D. are connected by an internet-live-stream. All regions are characterized by common geological history, the legacy of the industrial era and options of postindustrial development.

C.O.A.L. from Carboniferous to open-eyed artists on landscape.

The medium is the message - a contemporary Europe without borders and barriers.
