LUM's article Urban creativity giving life to hidden places points out that Banksys street art paintings have been moved into museums protected behind glass.

"Malmö profiles itself as a young and creative city through graffiti walls and the Stapelbädd's skating park.

What happens when subcultures are embraced by the city?

LUM met two researchers from the new interdisciplinary theme Urban Creativity at the Pufendor Institute, who see the public space with new eyes."

The full interview (in Swedish) can be read at lu.se/article/urban-kreativitet-ger-liv-at-gomda-platser

The Urban Creativity theme runs for 8 months from 1 October 2018 onwards. It will culminate in a conference in mid-May 2019. A call for papers is under preparation and will be sent out in the coming weeks.

If you are interested in urban creativity (e.g. graffiti, street art, parkour, skateboarding, dumpster diving and guerrilla gardening) and want to collaborate with the theme, you are welcome to contact the coordinators through Instagram or the theme website pi.lu.se/en/activities/UrbanCreativity.
