Wondering how you can be involved in your community this spring and summer? Join us online to find out about four exciting projects which would love your help! We’ll hear from:

Helsingbutt – a Vision Fund project that is looking to clean up the city from cigarette butts and discarded snus, then create an art installation with the collected litter. They are looking for 25 volunteers in total. Nantli and Daniela are both from Mexico and have been living in Helsingborg since August 2020.

Barns Lekparti (Children’s Play Party) – a Vision Fund project which will work with children and different social groups to design and create an adventure play space in Helsingborg. Volunteers will have an active role in helping build the play space and will have many opportunities to learn new skills, too! Kevin and Lili are from the USA and have been living in Sweden for the last 2 and 3 years.

Vårt Helsingborg (Our Helsingborg) – a Vision Fund project which will work with unestablished artists in the city to co-create and make a public artwork. Filip will teach everything from placement, sustainability and environmental aspects to financing. The project’s vision is to build self-confidence and knowledge in unestablished artists, who will benefit from a more active cultural grassroots movement in the city. Filip has both Swedish and Iranian heritage and has lived in Sweden all his life.

Söderscen – “Söderscen på Furutorpsplatsen” is a placemaking project by the Department of Urban Planning of the city of Helsingborg. The project aims to transform Furutorpsplatsen into the living room of Söder, the southern part of the city, by engaging the community in multiple activities for different audiences. Everyone can come with their ideas for leisure activities and projects to be implemented at Furutorpsplatsen and the co-ordinators will gladly facilitate their development. Alina is from the Ukraine and has been living in Helsingborg since 2018.
