In DORP we are creating a better world, together. At this seven-day innovation village before and during the festival Welcome to The Village in Leeuwarden, we will embark on an adventure together towards a circular economy in 2050. We devise and develop sustainable projects that we immediately test in the field within a unique mini-society. Innovation on location we call that!


Work together with an interdisciplinary team to improve your concept or prototype in just seven days. You'll have full access to our coaches, workshop and network, so that after a week your project can immediately be field tested during the festival. These were the projects of DORP 2019.

More about the Projects


Innovation and sustainability. Wonderful words, we think. And probably you too. Not only do we think about it a lot, we also like to talk about it. But what we'd rather do is get to work on it. Because rolling up our sleeves, getting our hands dirty, going from thinking to making and persevering - that's a challenge. One that makes us happy and one from which we know for sure that beautiful things will come out of it. Together we contribute to a sustainable world. Are you in?
