An Aarhus 2017 Commissioned Event in collaboration with Central Denmark Region
Presented by Aarhus University, VIA University College, Headstart Fashion and “this” by Filmby Aarhus/Interactive Denmark
Vogue it up and get ready for a spectacular performance and fashion show when fashion and new technologies combine to walk on water from Aarhus into the world. Dokk1 and the Aarhus Harbour set the scene for Aarhus Walks on Water with digital facade projections, interactive e-textiles and sonic spaces.
Digital scenography will shape the space for Europe’s most talented young fashion designers and developers whose collections in tech-enhanced clothes and wearables will be shown on a floating runway made for mermaids and mermen.
Aarhus Walks on Water will transform the new urban space where the canal meets the open water, with visuals and film, lights and sound, created in an interdisciplinary collaboration through innovation camps and maker workshops, between young designers, students and the creative industries of the region.
About More Creative
Our Creative Industries are looking at ways to generate, innovate, and evolve new business ideas and methodologies. In our year of culture we are working in partnership with big, small and incubator businesses to make sure we stay at the leading edge of these developments.
We recognize the symbiosis between the artist and the entrepreneur and establish ways for them to connect, develop and discover together.
Working with More Creative we are stimulating the environment for digital communicators, urban innovators, fashion designers and product creators so that we can live smarter and better in the future. Aarhus 2017 is about business growth and shared prosperity born from meeting the needs of the consumer now and into the future.
More Creative is led by the Central Denmark Region in partnership with Aarhus 2017 to make Denmark a global player in the creative economy. It is our belief that the creative economy is the economy of the future because the creative industries hold the solutions to the challenges of tomorrow.
The initiative develops and supports creative business environments and builds bridges to the wider business community in cooperation with regional knowledge institutions. More Creative actively supports four clusters in the fields of architecture, design, fashion, and digital visual industries.
