Invasion MTV at ITESO p.12-13 (Spanish)
Got asked if I could be photographed with a T-Shirt from Oatly Apparel. I thought this would be my good deed of the month as I believe that Oatly is a super good swedish brand that I hope soon will be spreading all over the globe.
At the end the t-shirt I was promoting got sold-out during Way Out West Festival 2015 so never made it to the apparel, only the group photo.
Got to jump in in an interview Sveriges Radio did to artist Max Solca, and talk about The STPLN Window Project which I produce and curate together with the creative studio and art magazine Little Finger. The project is inspired in The Hoxton Window Project by Unit9. This is the third year I have produced it in Malmö Sweden at STPLN-Stapelbädden the organisation I work for.
I was interviewed for Lokal Tidningen where I talk about what a Maker Spaces and how we work at Fabriken.
even talked about how the community together could profile the area of Västra Hamnen.
SPREADING SOME LOVE: Chano and I modelling for Peludos feat Peseta
Peludos involves culture and community for animal awareness. They help abandoned animals by creating great products and donating part of the profit to associations that help homeless animals. My dog Chano and I had the chance to participate in their campaign where they feature one of my favourite Spanish brands Peseta.
Our photo was even featured in the Spanish Magazine Metropoli. It felt quite weird to get messages from my friends living in Madrid saying they saw me that day on the mag; but it was great being part of such a beautiful project, If you want to support, go in and buy your Peludos product here!
We finally opened the doors of STPLN for the public. We had around 350 visitors, all from people interested in culture wanting to try out the activities we were offering, to entrepreneurs presenting their ideas. We even got the visit of an 80 year-old man who used to work there, when the building was part of Kockums.
On this picture the photographer tried to reproduce an older one when they used to build boats on the roof of our building!! it was a nice article… and made the first page on Malmö’s section in Sydsvenskan.
Article on newspaper PUBLICO , Guadalajara. Mex.
A seminar on the changing audience conditions and its consequences. 19-20 May, 2009.
In this seminar, organized by KOP- Network for art and audience questions we got to share scenario with important people form the art environment such as Lars Nittve from Moderna Muséet, Peter Gorschlüter from Tate Liverpool and Jacob Fabricius from Konsthallen in Malmo. We were invited to talk about the model we work with at Stapelbädden. Some of the important points of our presentation were:
* We don’t believe there are “creative and not creative people” we think everyone can be creative if they get the right opportunity to show it.
*New exchange economy.
* Stapelbädden is not for everyone, but everyone is welcome!
MALMO NEXT, 12 conversations with people that do something
Writer and filmmaker Carl-Henrik Svenstedt contacted us and asked if we were interested to be a part of his book about the cultural development in the city of Malmo. He heard of our project De Dödas Festival (The festival of the dead) and though the way we worked and the theme of the subject were quite interesting. We were off course interested!! Some of the other projects that were also in the book were people like: Suzanne Naffah from Din Gata, Politician Luciano Astudillo, Daniel Strausser who brought yoga to Malmo and Björn Stenbäck who started the first ecologic restaurant in this city, just to mention a few.
