Events for this project:
What would Umeå look like in the future if it were up to the children? In the Fair City project Kulturverket works with around a thousand children and young people from Umeå as they create visions and fantasies about the Umeå of the future. We have divided the city into nine parts, each of them working with a particular theme for the future, such as water, children’s rights, energy and communication. This creative effort has been under way in schools throughout 2012 and 2013 and the pupils’ materials and ideas are being interpreted and visualised by professional artists and other professionals within the culture field..
The work will be presented in nine pavillions, that will form a joint exhibition, part of the inauguration of Umeå2014.
This project is made possible with the help of sponsors: Akademiska Hus, Bostaden, Helhet Reklam, Länsförsäkringar Västerbotten, Martinsons Trä, Umeå Energi och UPAB.
