Dutch Artists collective Satellietgroep (The Hague, 2006) explores the sea, coastal transitions, climate change and the impact of mankind on these processes, in The Netherlands and abroad. The team creates conditions for artists and designers to work on site during artist-in-residency programs, collaborate with the extensive network of locals and scientists, to develop new works and insights to be shared with broader audiences during public programs.
The current team of Satellietgroep consists of Jacqueline Heerema, Francois Lombarts and Lotte Bosman.
