ByVerkstedet (NO) x USE academy (TALK)
— Creating Bottom-up Urban Projects

ByVerkstedet runs an open-container workshop in Oslo that creates participatory projects that engage the local community. They work with design, crafts, architecture and urban development and explore new ways of collaboration between residents, the private and the public sector.

ByVerkstedet works in public spaces where they hosts events and run creative workshops such as Ride On, Hijab & Totes and K1 design studio with local youth. They aim to inspire creativity and practical skills, as well as finding ways to help improve and create sustainable communities, neighborhoods, public spaces and cities.

ByVerkstedet is a non-profit organization established in 2013. ByVerkstedet is currently located at Tøyen, a neighbourhood in Oslo. With its over 50.000 inhabitants (larger than many Norwegian towns), Tøyen is the most densely populated area in the city and a center for cultural diversity.

The talk will be a presentation of how ByVerkestedet came to life, based on local know how, volunteerism and steely determination, to developing into an organization working and interacting locally on multiple levels. Through a showcase of various projects, such as Hideaway & Drivhuset - where pupils at two local schools got to design and build their own hangouts, Sykkelfix - a bike workshop run by local youth, and Tool Pool - a concept where people can borrow tools for free at their local library and more, we will share our struggles and our successes.

Hvordan skaber man bottom-up byrumsprojekter?

ByVerkstedet er et åbent containerværksted i Olso som skaber urbane projekter, der engagerer lokalsamfund på forskellig vis. De arbejder på tværs af design, håndværk, arkitektur og byudvikling, og udforske nye måder at samarbejde mellem beboere, den private og den offentlige sektor.

ByVerkstedet arbejder i offentlige rum hvor de arrangerer events og kreative workshops som Ride On, Hijab & Totes og K1 designstudio med den lokale ungdom. ByVerkstedet har til formål at fostre kreativitet og lære folk nye færdigheder, skabe bæredygtige samfund, byer og offentlige rum.

ByVerkstedet er en non-profit organisation etableret i 2013 og har adresse på Tøyen, et kvarter i Oslo. Med sine over 50.000 indbyggere (større end mange norske byer) er Tøyen Oslos mest tætbefolkede område og et center for kulturel mangfoldighed.

Oplægget præsenterer hvordan ByVerkestedet blev skabt, baseret på lokal knowhow, frivillighed og stålvilje. Hvordan det udviklede sig til en organisation, der arbejder og interagerer lokalt på flere niveauer. Gennem en showcase af forskellige projekter, som Hideaway & Drivhuset – hvor elever i to lokale skoler designede og byggede deres egne hangouts, Sykkelfix – et cykelværksted, der drives af den lokale ungdom, og Tool Pool – et koncept, hvor folk kan låne værktøj gratis på et lokalt bibliotek plus meget mere. Kom og få indblik i ByVerkstedets kampe og succeser!

USE academy

USE academy facilitates talks and workshops about the role of design and creativity in society. USE academy invites designers and architects from around the world to provide insight into their critical work approaches, methods, thoughts and projects that embrace topics of social, cultural, political or economic nature.

USE academy is supported by: Aarhus 2017 - European Capital of Culture, Danish Arts Foundation and Aarhus Municipality.

 

 

(DK): USE academy er en formidlingsplatform baseret i Aarhus. Igennem gratis talks og workshops - ønsker USE academy at skabe fokus på, hvilken rolle design spiller i dag. Designere skaber mere end skønne objekter, de er kritiske og tager fat om aktuelle problemstillinger, der fylder i samfundsdebatten - om det er feminisme, bæredygtighed, kulturelle forskelle, designaktivisme eller byrumspolitik.

 

USE academy er støttet af: Aarhus 2017 - Europæisk Kulturhovedstad, Statens Kunstfond og Aarhus Kommune
