Thursday 18 October 18:30 – Meet Matkooperativet!

It’s a real pleasure to meet a social entrepreneur who has been able to transform her passion into a popular business! This is what Hanna Bergström, founder of Matkooperativet (food cooperative) has done in Helsingborg. The farmers’ markets she visited while living in New York inspired her to source fresh food from local suppliers in Skåne, seeking out organic produce wherever possible. She’s been able to share her interest with the local community by forming a thriving consumer co-operative.

Since starting the association in February 2017 and using two crowd-funding campaigns to develop the store, public interest has rocketed. Join us for a tour of the shop, where you can see and taste some of the produce available and learn about sustainable initiatives in place such as refilling your own containers of toiletries or household liquids. You’ll also find out how to join the co-operative, member discounts and volunteering opportunities. We hope to have a few of the suppliers on hand to talk about their produce, too!

We are often asked questions by international citizens living in Sweden about specific legal matters, so have long wanted to arrange an evening on family and private law. We are very pleased to offer this event in conjunction with local firm Nerle Jonsson Lindeblad Advokatbyrå.

Johanna Lindeblad and Per Nerle will present their company and talk about situations which affect international citizens living here, such as divorce, custody, inheritance, employment and residence rights. What happens, for example, if you lose your job or decide to divorce?

We welcome questions in advance for this event, so that you can send your queries in confidence. Please email sally@hiconnections.eu. Johanna and Per will also hold a Question and Answer session after their presentation.

Thursday 13 September 09:15 – Visit to Louisiana Museum of Modern Art

If you haven’t been to this beautiful museum across the Sound in Denmark, it’s definitely time for a visit. Considered the most important museum of modern art in Northern Europe, Louisiana is famous for its innovative look at contemporary art and stunning surroundings. Its permanent collection holds over 3000 works and 8-12 special exhibitions are held every year.

We’ll meet at Knutpunkten and travel together, with everyone responsible for purchasing their own tickets for travel and museum entry. We recommend buying the combined return travel and museum entrance ticket at the Scandlines ticket desk (275 SEK for adults, see link for child & over 65s’ discount). We’ve chosen the bus route from Helsingör as it takes us directly to Louisiana.

You’re free to look at the exhibits by yourself or with other HIC guests, and to return at the time that suits you best. We hope to meet at the cafe for lunch, too! We’ll decide on the day, depending on the wishes of the group.
