→ Child Culture Design: English

As part of the project I Händelsernas Centrum, students from the Child Culture Design program at HDK-Valand have carried out educational and co-creative activities together with children and young people in Kiruna. Together with children from three different schools in Kiruna, the two projects Andan and Wandering Objects have been developed.

During the closing weekend of Luleåbiennalen 2024 both projects are inaugurated and presented to the public in Kiruna. The students of Child Culture Design are available on site to welcome you into the various activities presented. Join in on do-it-yourself workshops and experience the new play sculptures! Materials for creating and exploring are provided at both locations.

Inauguration of Andan

Andan is an art installation that comes to life with the help of wind and light, two resources that Kiruna has in abundance. The project aims to create a new meeting place for Kiruna's children and to make visible the light and wind that characterize its climate.
Location: Gruvstadsparken, at the site of the old City Hall

Friday 24 of May

14.30-14.45
Inauguration of Wandering Objects
Wandering Objects is an interactive play sculpture that investigates how the built environment can provide space for children and young people to meet and explore. The children have contributed their visions of what the concept of "exploration" means to them.
Location:
