Digital meeting

The Bridge

the unique art project The Bridge opens a virtual bridge between Sweden and the Netherlands. A digital screen will link Umeå with Amsterdam.

In front of the Umeå screen, people will be able to see and interact in real time with people in Amsterdam, for example through a number of games developed especially for this project.

The Bridge is part of the official program for the 400 year anniversary of friendship and diplomatic relations between Sweden and the Netherlands.

The project premiered at Sergels Torg in Stockholm on September 18 (pictured), which was linked with an identical screen at Het Plein in The Hague.

Now, the screen is being set up at the Town Hall Square (Rådhustorget) in Umeå – European Capital of Culture 2014.

Between 10 October and 17 October, a daily programme of activities is offered in front of the screen for anyone to interact in different ways with the young people participating in Cinekid festival in Amsterdam.
