The first action of making installations for the Interreg project “WELCOME

Last weekend, young volunteers of the NGO Our action started an action of making art installations from collected natural and processed wood from the beach. Within the project “WELCOME” (WatER LandsCapes sustainability thrOught reuse of Marine littEr) which is financed through “Interreg IPA CBC Italy-Albania-Montenegro”, JU Morsko dobro announced in October 2019 a competition for the production of these art installations for which our organization won the third prize. The proposal of our young artists includes two installations – a crab and a jellyfish, which will be composed of natural materials without the use of nails or some other materials harmful to nature. After the construction, all installations within the project are planned to be placed on the dunes on Velika plaža and will serve as artistic protective constructions for the preservation of sand dunes. During this action day, one part of the team was in charge of procuring glue, wooden dowels and ropes, the other part of the team was working on the beach to gather the necessary material. The experience took the young people to one of the worst beaches in Montenegro, right to the right of the Lustica bay complex. After that, they started making installations that slowly began to form. We will not publish the results, ie the installations themselves, until the action of setting them up, on March 28, 2020.
