This workshop brings together NGOs and voluntary organizations us­ing arts and artistic creativity as a working method to support and help immigrants, refugees and other minority groups with their inte­gration, learning, mental and social change.

Our purpose is to provide a platform for the exchange of experiences, ideas and knowledge in a field that has shown important poten­tial for integration as well as for improved quality of life. The participants will also have the opportunity to examine and discuss ways of social entrepreneurship.

An exhibition of work done by the NGOs will take place alongside the workshop.

Picture: Pattern ”The whole world in one bag”

The flight from war and insecurity often begins with one single bag. What parts of a whole life can be packed and what has to be left behind? Many people have come to Sweden with just one bag.
At Livstycket in Tensta some of these new Swedes have recounted their story about their flight by drawing their one and only bag during the winter of 2006/2007. The drawings became a fabric design and it was exhibited at Svenskt Tenn in Stockholm during the spring of 2007. Memories of packing for the last time are inextricably linked to the first memories of Sweden. Leaving and arriving with only one bag, in a design from Livstycket.
