2013 has turned into 2014 and we’re up for new meetings with inspiring people, like all the creative people we met last year. One example of a large amount of creativity and DIY-spirit is our newest venue. Meet Kulturhuset Framtiden in Linköping. I had a little chat with them where they present themselves and their activities.
To begin with, we’re so glad to have you guys with us on Emues!
Yeah, thanks a lot for hooking us up!
Who and what is Framtiden? How did it all start?
Kulturhuset Framtiden was started and is run by our small collective Streetexpressions, based in Östergötland, Sweden. Streetex is me Adrian Pettersson, and my buddies Pär Carlsson, Andreas von Knudelhausen, Julius Nord and Sebastian Galo, we make art, music, tattoos, host events and more. We’ve been a crew since 2010 and have, since the beginning, talked about finding some place to have our studios and, if there’s enough room, run a small, independent art gallery where we can exhibit artist we like and throw small parties.
As soon as we started looking for real we found this enormous old warehouse-space where we really could fulfill our dreams, and more. We opened in June 2013.
