Leven onder aan de dijk

In the autumn of 2018, Sense of Place, in collaboration with the village of Blije, took visitors along the Wadden coast. With Blije as a stage, ‘Leven onder aan de dijk’ (Living at the bottom of the dike) showed how men and the sea have been evenly matched for centuries. On the one hand, the sea as lord and master, on the other hand, men building a life on gained land.
How did people live along the beautiful but inexorable Wadden coast centuries ago? What can the residents tell us about contemporary life at the bottom of the dike? And what does the future look like according to the experts? With a charming program containing exhibitions and lectures on the development of landscape, climate change etc. ‘Life at the bottom of the dike’ offered something for everyone and people learned more about this beautiful piece of Frysl├ón.
