The programme in Bergsjöns Kulturhus and on Kulturstråket is made possible in collaboration with Higab.

The idea for the collective artwork “A girlang for Kulturhuset in Bergsjön” was born in November 2021 in Bergsjön, Gothenburg, a unique place where over 140 different nationalities live.

"A garland for Kulturhuset in Bergsjön" is part of the textile graffiti festival during the Culture Festival weekend. The garland will be opening on the in connection with the premiere of Bergsjön's culture house on 17th of August.

Our purpose with just a garland is because we think it symbolizes collective cooperation, but at the same time the individual is lifted as everyone's yarn balls look different. As the final result, a small ball of yarn may not look like much to the world. However, when we connect them, it is as if we all join hands to celebrate the welcome of a new culture house together. Just as we have worked together for many years to make it a culture house here, we, as individuals and associations, young and old, have created art and cultural activities for the whole community. May the garland become as powerful as Bergsjön!

So far, yarn balls have been created in associations, schools, leisure centers, preschools, organizations, politicians and other actors and the more people who come in, these will be tied to the common garland and that will be a powerful sight!
But of course we want the garland to grow even further and still aim to get even more yarn balls. That's why your commitment is important!

After the festival, the garland moves further into Nordstan during the Sustainability Festival week 42, where you will also be able to take part in the work and contribute to it through collective creation under the theme Sustainable fashion / slow fashion.

Do you want to join? Leave your ball of yarn with us at Navet in Bergsjön's office (Rymdtorget 2) before the 17th of August, or make your contribution on the festival. If your contribution is very large, please let us know in advance.
