Satellietgroep (The Hague, 2006) explores through arts and culture how the sea and waterways influence cities, people, communities and environment. Our aim is to enhance public and professional awareness on coastal transitions. Long term projects are ‘Badgast’ – artist in residency program at The Hague/Scheveningen, and ‘Now Wakes The Sea’, the international exchange residency program in collaboration with international cultural partners.
The project Now Wakes The Sea’ (NWTS) is initiated by Dutch Satellietgroep and involves research based artist in residence programs for artists/architects/filmmakers in coastal transition areas in countries surrounding the Black Sea and North Sea to develop new works, select existing works and program traveling film festivals for public screenings and debates on venues, both on the coast of the Black Sea as on the North Sea.
The cultural exchange project ‘Now Wakes The Sea’ started in 2012 with the exchange of The Netherlands and Turkey in the context of NLTR400. Satelietgroep is very proud to be selected for the program for Russia, called NLFR2013. ECF and local partners provide funding to continue the project with Moldova and Georgia.


During Juli 2013 artist/director Nicoleta Esinencu from Moldova is artist in residence @ Badgast as part of the international cultural exchange project ‘Now Wakes The Sea’ in collaboration with our partner MediArt Dialogue (MD).
During October 2013 Maarten de Kroon (NL) will be resident at Moldova.

In July Moldovan writer Nicoleta Esinencu was artist in resident at Badgast (NL). Her starting point was an an essay about childhood memories of travels to the Black Sea during Soviet times. She is currently developing a work that will be presented in the form dialogue/performance in Chisinau.

During September we have Tatiana Fiodorova, from the Moldovan partner organisation MediArt Dialog and Artploshadka as a resident in Badgast, Scheveningen. Together we prepare the artist in residence workperiod of filmmaker Maarten de Kroon in Chisinau, a film screening with Moldovan works in The Netherlands, a film screening with Dutch /Turkish / Georgian and Moldovan works in Chisinau, an artist talk with Nicoleta Esinencu and Maarten de Kroon and a workshop by Satellietgroep and Mediart Dialog in Chisinau in November.
