PEOPLE BUILD THE CITY
A lot is happening in Gothenburg. The West Link is under construction. Gamlestaden is being restored and new neighborhoods are expanding on former industrial estates.
But Gothenburg is not only buildings, parks and roads.
The city is also its people. You, who are here today, and everyone who lived here before us. What have they left behind, worthy of preservation? And which kind of place should the city be in the future? What is your opinion?
Urbanum is a meeting place for anyone who wants to take a fresh look at the city. Join us on a journey which starts before Gothenburg even existed. Meet today’s enthusiasts, see historic films and hang out in our cosy reading corner.
Follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter #URBANUMGBG.
Urbanum is produced in partnership with the Administration for Allocation of Social Welfare and Funktek – a project about accessibility for all. The ‘funktek pilots’ are our expert consultants evaluating exhibitions and city walks. In Urbanum we have tested exhibition design, colours, texts and interpretation levels. www.funktek.se
The exhibition texts are available in english. Ask the staff in the museum´s reception.
Urbanum can be reached by lift. The exhibition texts are available in Braille. Our front-of- house staff can guide you. The historic films have Swedish subtitling, and are interpreted by sign language and audio description.
