Visioning Landskrona (Sweden)

The vision document is the result of a six-month residency (as cultural planner) by Lia Ghilardi in Landskrona. During her stay, she conducted a number of public visioning workshops (called Place Cultural Enquiry), the results of which were developed into a full mapping of the city's cultural resources, aimed at identifying its distinctive strengths. The mapping was used to propose creative solutions to some of the city's problems, such as low image, lack of a strong identity, social and cultural segregation through zoned housing, lack of dialogue between different cultures, and poor use of public spaces. As a result, Landskrona has developed a citywide Cultural Planning Stakeholders Group, which is currently working on the implementation of a number of high profile actions following Lia's recommendations.
