'The Abundance and Scarcity of Sand' is a symposium focused on the critical discussion of sand as one of the most quickly disappearing natural resources in the world. Hosted by Atelier NL and MU, this symposium is a place for artists, designers, scientists, environmentalists, and the local community to participate in lectures and in-depth conversation regarding the environmental challenges and potential solutions surrounding sand.

The symposium is dedicated to the memory and passion of Michael Welland, British geologist and author of the award-winning book ‘Sand’. 
Keynote speaker Denis Delestrac, award-winning filmmaker, and director of 'Sand Wars' (2013), will kick off the conversation. The lecture that Michael Welland prepared for the evening will then be read in his honor. Finally, curator, artist, and community developer Jacqueline Heerema of Satellietgroep will share her perspective. 

The event will culminate with an interactive panel discussion in which the public is welcome to participate. The panel will consist of Denis Delestrac, Jacqueline Heerema (Satellietgroep), Winy Maas (MVRDV), Lonny van Ryswyck (Atelier NL), Mindert de Vries (Deltares/Waddenacademie), and Marcus Fairs (Dezeen).
