For more detailed description and program: • Urgent Things to Do - Malmoe (download PDF)

You can also read it here. What is urgent? In Malmö? In general? What is missing? In a specific context or site?

"Urgent Things" are not a scientific category, but rather ask for the personal interpretation of the participants – which of course can be extended to other people, to a general audience or even to politicians.

During the workshop we will take care of these urgent things by giving them room in public  space – as poetic moments, radical actions, clandestine installations, etc.

The participants of the workshop are asked to prepare 1–3 "urgent things" they would like to address and possible locations they are interested in for realization.
