In Råslätt, optimism in the future is growing in collaboration with residents, associations, religious communities and the municipality. The residents want to work with art to strengthen the project and consolidate the optimism. And to raise the profile of the neighbourhood.
The Råslätt residential area lies south of central Jönköping and is divided in two parts with shops and community facilities in the centre. The six to eight floors multi-dwelling units were built in the early 1970s. The area is characterised by traffic-free green areas.
Activities and associations in Råslätt include the Family Centre, Stadsgården Youth Centre, Underground/RFG, Råslätt Sports Club, the Somali Association, Mix Dancers, Young Eagles Råslätt and study circles in collaboration with ABF, the Workers’ Educational Association. The municipal housing company Vätterhem is an active actor in Råslätt.
