Farm of the World is a cultural project, initiated by visual artist Claudy Jongstra for Leeuwarden European Cultural Capital 2018, that focuses on exploring new and sustainable futures for the countryside. The centre of the project is an farm in Húns, a tiny village in Friesland. By bringing in designers, artists, architects and artisans from all over the world to work together with local resources, new techniques and old crafts, the Kreake becomes a production farm again – but this time, as an example of how creativity and cooperation can bring life to a formerly abandoned rural farm. By doing so we want to show the diversity and richness of what a small piece of land can produce: from biodynamic bouquets to ceramics, food, dyes, space etc.
