Participants from a local context
Students and educators from local Elinsborgsskolan.
The school has about 330 pupils from pre-school to grade 6, divided into two classes per grade. Elinsborgs School also has a preparatory class for immigrant children and a special group, LK. The school offers a specialization in music for pupils in grades 5 and 6. In the residency project we collaborated mainly with the after school center.
The womens café.
Women from the Järva area meet at Tensta konsthall to work on different kinds of crafts. Through working together, a safe space is made where conversation and the exchange of experience is the focus. The craftsmanship skills that women in the group already have is amplified and reinforced by teachers from Hemslöjden and by each other. Participants also meet visiting artists from the residency. Women’s Café is an intimate venue free of constraints, costs, and commercial interests. In collaboration with the Women’s Center in Tensta- Hjulsta.
