About DORP

DORP is the interdisciplinary innovation lab ten days prior to Welcome to The Village. In a limited time frame, we build and test innovations in a festival infrastructure that involve energy, water and whatever you come up with, that can catapult us towards a sustainable future. 

How we work at DORP

DORP is the Living Lab where concepts and experiments follow each other rapidly, with loads of interaction between multiple disciplines, varying from entrepreneurs, artists, scientists and students from every course you can think of.

With the help of experts, coaches inspirational sessions and fully stacked work places, we’re creating a spot where we visualize and experience the circulair economy. A crucial aspect, maybe even a condition, is the possibility to fail. Because when an innovation doesn’t fail in it’s proces, maybe that innovation isn’t innovative enough.

And when it fails we fix it together, establishing a great learning curve. With that, DORP is a crucial mile stone to actually launch circulair innovation
