A people’s park. A place for culture and celebration. Mellanstaden People’s House and Park want to design a new meeting place in Kungsmarken. In collaboration with the association and residents, artist Johanna Gustafson Fürst is exploring what such a place could be.
There is a strong sense of community in Kungsmarken. However, many inhabitants feel that it is unsafe to visit places such as the library, the school or the sports hall during the evening. Almost all the services and municipal activities are located outside the residential area.
Kungsmarken’s first multi-dwelling units were built in the late 1960s. Surrounded by a wooded area, the buildings are located on a hill and have traffic-free courtyards.
Mellanstaden People’s House and Park aim to create a place for encounters, culture and celebrations in Kungsmarken. The initiative comes from both associations and individuals. The association works closely with the municipal housing association Karlskronahem, the Municipality of Karlskrona, the Tenants Association and associations and residents in Kungsmarken. ABF (the Workers’ Educational Association) is represented on the board. The People’s House and Park’s National Organisation also supports the project.
