ART, CULTURE, PLACE AND DEMOCRACY
The interdisciplinary network CROCUS focuses on cultural and creative industries and aims to create a dynamic and living environment that strengthens research and teaching at Campus Helsingborg.
Cultural and creative activities are often embedded in complex networks of public, private, and civil actors and resources, creating specific conditions for those operating in these areas. Places and physical resources also set conditions and create conditions, while these change through cultural and creative activities.
During Our Future City, CROCUS invites you to several program points on June 8, 2022 on the theme of change, movement and transformation.
10.00-12. Urban sketching
Open sketch-walk in Oceanhamnen led by Christina Forsberg and Cecilia Fredriksson. Urban sketching is part of a creative global movement that encourages drawing what we see in our immediate environment. As an urban sketcher, you do not beautify what you see, but you are true to your subject, a kind of narrative documentation of the present. The relationship between drawing and taking notes can be considered a dialogue, an ongoing conversation where the importance of adopting a new vision is more important than the competence to 'know how to draw'. How can working with sketchpads and observation-based drawing develop visual thinking?
As a draftsman and watercolourist, Christina Forsberg has many years of experience in urban sketching and Cecilia Fredriksson is interested in ethnographic drawing as a creative method in various research projects.
Location: Collection at Pixlapiren, Oceanagatan 2. Bring paper, pencils to draw and/or color with. Watercolor and water for those who want to try painting outside. Paper clips/clips if it's windy.
Registration: The sketch walk is open to everyone and does not require registration.
10.30-12:00 Audio walk
During the walk through Helsingborg's urban space, you meet different voices and creative interpretations that raise questions about what constitutes a place or a city. The walk starts at Helsingborg's city theater and ends on the footbridge outside Campus Helsingborg.
Location: The walk starts from Helsingborg's city theater and ends on the footbridge outside Campus Helsingborg. Bring your own smart phone.
Registration: The walk is open to all and does not require registration.

15-15.45 This is how the library of the future is created through democratic innovation and service design
In a rapidly changing world, public libraries stand as important democratic places for access to information, but also as meeting places and spaces for pre-purchase. In 2026, Helsingborg's new city library will be ready, in the process of working out how the library can meet the new conditions of the future, they are supported by research. Helsingborg's library is in the middle of a process for developing the library of the future, and works with innovation and service design to come up with better ways to be relevant to visitors. Researchers at Campus Helsingborg have begun collaboration with Helsingborg's library to study how this innovation work develops, and what it means for those who work in the library, for users and for the development of library services in the future.
Katja Lindqvist, Associate Professor in Business Administration, Department of Service Management and Service Science, Lund University, Campus Helsingborg
Josefin Andersson, business developer, Helsingborg's library
Maria Johansson-Näslund, librarian, Helsingborg's library
Location: The conversation takes place on the main stage, Campus Helsingborg.

SEAWEED + CERAMICS + TEXTILES during Southern Sweden Design Days
TEXTILE MATTERS brings together seven experimental projects. One of them is the ongoing research project SEAWEED + CERAMICS + TEXTILES, which is conducted within the framework of CROCUS, where Marie Ledendal and Cecilia Fredriksson investigate and problematize the expression and materiality of seaweed.
Marie Ledendal is a textile designer and lecturer in applied visual communication at the Department of Strategic Communication at Lund University. She has a practice-based PhD in smart textiles and textile design. Her research investigates how art, fashion and materiality act as strategic communication carriers and how visual representation is purposefully used as a meaning-making tool.
Cecilia Fredriksson is a professor of ethnology at the Department of Service Management and Service Science at Lund University. Among other things, she researches seaweed as experience and future resource.
In the exhibition, Marie and Cecilia explore seaweed through watercolor, clay, and textile sublimation and transfer techniques.
Location: The exhibition takes place at KKV Textiltryck, Gallery Textilkoll, Korsgatan 6, Malmö.

We will make a presentation about an upcoming research project and how we have chosen to start. We look forward to discussing the topic of research and how to develop it.

CREATIVE WORK: Myths, Conditions and Contexts
24 November 2021 10-12 a.m.
CROCUS NETWORK MEETING
Creative work is ever more frequent in descriptions of contemporary and future economies and lifestyles. Culture and creativity are often described as central elements in urban and regional development and creative work is promoted as central for innovation and growth as well as individual fulfilment. Some would argue that creativity and creative work is a moral and cultural imperative in contemporary society where we are all creative workers.
In the forthcoming anthology Creative Work: Myths, Conditions and Contexts we aim to give empirical insights and theoretical perspectives on creative work in urban and rural environments and in local, national or international contexts. This network meeting offers insights into the project and short presentations of four different chapters.
We look forward to presenting and discussing the project.

CREATIVE APPROACH TO INVASIVE SPECIES
The theme Perspectives on Invasive Plants at the Pufendorf Institute consists of researchers from Lund University and the Swedish University of Agriculture. This includes Cecilia Fredriksson and Carina Sjöholm, who are both also active in CROCUS.
In connection with the Sustainability Week in Lund, the theme inaugurated the exhibition 'Who goes away?' The exhibition provides a perspective on invasive, alien plants and is based on a study in which a large number of Swedes described what they think. Some of the answers are now displayed together with watercolors painted by Cecilia Fredriksson in the Pufendorf Institute's garden in Lund.
- It is new and fun for me to combine painting with research. I am interested in and work with creative methods both here at the Pufendorf Institute and in CROCUS, says Cecilia.
The exhibition is on display in the garden until May 31, 2021.
