Prototype - next steps:
Just as important for the project as the TRAVELERS are the MEDIATORS: people who help make the project happen by sharing their craft, knowledge, resources, experience and generosity.

Once the TRAVELERS were launched far into the North Atlantic Ocean, we staged a MEDIATOR event to connect people, knowledge and ideas that in different ways contri-buted to the project.

Get involved! Now, with the prototype established, our work with MEDIATORS continues: we are open for collaborations with hosts, schools and local island communities around the world to extend and multiply TRAVELERS and MEDIATORS to further explore questions of belonging.

Get in touch if you find one of the TRAVELERS so we can include your encounter!

Warm thanks to MEDIATORS: André Fontes, Pedro Pascoal and Marina Carreiro Silva for initial contacts; biologist Prof. Maria João Trota for sharing her extensive knowledge of the natural history of the Azores and its wood species; Rubén Monfort and crew at vaga art space in PDL for generous support and workshop space; Eng. Carina Nóbrega at Direção Regional dos Recursos Florestais for hooking us up with Pinhal da Paz Park that provided endemic and exotic wood for the Travelers; and last but not least - captain André Branco at SailZen for launching the prototype Travelers into the North Atlantic.
