We’ll get back to you with a new date. If you have already signed up through Eventbrite, you will retain your place 🙂


We’re very pleased to offer this tour of Dunkers kulturhus, where we’ll learn about the history of the building and its many activities. As Dunkers is open until 20:00 on Thursdays, you’ll also be able to visit the exhibitions at your own pace until then.

The maximum number of people on the tour will be 20 and we kindly remind you that HIC events are funded by Helsingborgs stad to help the city’s international residents discover more about Helsingborg, so we must prioritise international residents, their partners and Swedes returning from living abroad when signing up for our events. Thank you for your understanding!

Thursday 15 March 17:00 – Sharing Spaces

Co-create, co-work and collaborate with our co-hosts THINK Open Space and Hyperdrive!

Join us for a fun and inspiring event as we check out three great spaces in Helsingborg, starting at THINK Open Space and Mindpark, then moving across to Pixlapiren.

Rebecka Nilsson, Community Manager at THINK Open Space, will kick off the evening by introducing us to all the facilities on offer and letting us know about the many projects and events taking place. Did you know that THINK Open Space is a kommun-owned space, available to anyone to work, hang out and enjoy the friendly, international vibe? Or that the auditoriet can be used for free by any organisation wanting to put on a free knowledge-sharing event? This is your chance to find out more!

We’ll then have a guided tour of Mindpark, the cool and calm co-working space upstairs, where you can rent different sized offices or desk space, or even buy a card where you can use the facilities 12 times in 12 months. There’s a communal feel to Mindpark, where you can be involved in joint weekly lunches and other events or just chat by the coffee-maker with your co-workers!

At 17:45 we’ll walk across to Pixlapiren, where David Hare of Hyperdrive will talk to us about the many creative opportunities and activities available there. From 3D printers to an eco-friendly car, arts & crafts to DJ workshops, skateboarding to graffiti, there’s a place for all kinds of creative expression at Pixlapiren – come and find out how you can make the most of this child-friendly makerspace to engage with your hands, build what you planned, create it and paint it. Bring the projects that are too big to work on at home and let loose your creative energy, or set up a study circle or coffee morning at Pixlapiren. Did you know that you can even apply for funding from the kommun to help create your vision?!

We hope to have some of the artists and creators on hand to show you their projects, too 🙂

We can’t wait to show you these supportive, collaborative locations, so please join us to find out what’s happening in this part of town!
