Dear Spectrites,

The summer of Leonardo / Olats will be an Iberian journey in three stages:
Barcelona in Spain, then Evora and Marvão in Portugal and resolutely
focused on the plant world with events around the projects "Roots & Seeds
XXI" and "The Traveling Plant".

*1 - Roots & Seeds XXI*

*Multidisciplinary Garden Cartography *

Organised by Quo Artis, the lead partner of the Roots & Seeds XXI project,
this workshop is the first of a series of three. Taking place at the Ferran
Soldevila Garden (University of Barcelona) it gathers a group of
professionals from different fields (artists, scientists, economists,
philosophers, curators and art critics) whose practices are linked to the
plant world in different ways.

The two other workshops will take place in september, one organised by Ars
Electronica during the Festival in Linz and the other organised by
Leonardo/Olats in Paris.

The Roots & Seeds XXI partners are: Quo Artis, Ars Electronica,
Leonardo/Olats, Universitat de Barcelona in collaboration with the Institut
Botànic de Barcelona. The project is supported by the Creative Europe
programme of the European Union.
