How to Become a Culture City

The work How to Become a Culture City is a How to Manual which consists of nine suggestions on how to become a culture city derived from conversations with artists and art workers living in the region of Northern Jutland turned into a poster. Taking up the challenge of what constitutes a sustainable cultural city, the work seeks to engage the perspective of artists in the dialogue around formulating municipal cultural policies.

The work was exhibited at the fertilizer. festival and the point of departure for the discussion based event Hvordan bliver Aalborg en kulturby? organized by Danish Vaishyas, BAIT, and Kamilla Mez at Studenterhuset in Aalborg, Denmark.
