Project Y is a public art and outreach project initiated by the Ministry of Culture, Hamburg, and carried out in the framework of “Germany and India 2011-2012: Infinite Opportunities”. It will be held in the cities of Delhi and Hamburg between October 16th and November 23rd, 2011, almost in parallel.
The collaborative project is centered on the idea of creating ecological sustainable rivers in cities. Both the Elbe and the Yamuna are central to Hamburg’s and Delhi’s futures and there are various, very involved discussions around them, intensified by current challenges facing water issues. There is great public interest in the subject, even though the dialogues may be different in each place. It is expected to be one of the prime and most visible public projects during the project series “Germany and India 2011-2012”, and also coincides with the India week in Hamburg, celebrating Hamburg having been nominated as the European Green Capital 2011.
