A social space. Culture available to more people. Associations active in Jordbro’s Cultural Centre want to open up the closed space to the square outside.
Jordbro is located some 20 kilometres south of central Stockholm in the Municipality of Haninge. Jordbro’s Cultural Centre is a meeting place, comprising everything from environmental workshops to recording studios – all in all some 20 activities are gathered under one roof. However, the cultural centre is located in premises with a closed architecture; it is hard to see what’s going on in the building.
Jordbro’s multi-dwelling units were built from the 1950s to the 1970s. The Jordbro Cultural Centre was founded in 2011. The applicant, Jordbro World Orchestra, acts as a platform for a group of professional producers, musicians, dancers and performing artists. Several associations support the application and are participating in the discussions with the Public Art Agency Sweden.
