This project is the means to a cause of helping the residents of Vlaardingen, Netherlands create a bond with their city and each other.
In the past the herring was iconic for this city, that past is something we would like to introduce as something to be proud of.
The wish of Jos Lukassen the initiator to connect people with their city as well as each other, gave birth to a symbolic herring made of gypsum made by Corinna Euwes - de Jong.
Everybody an artist is a dare for anyone and everyone to decorate this blank canvas as they please, these decorated pieces can become part of a large school of herring and help promote the city of Vlaardingen all over the world, whilst simultaneously creating a feeling of togetherness with all participants. Not all are portrayed as of yet, there will be more.
