Creativity within urban gardening at times of emergency
Kreativitet inom stadsodling i kristider
Summary, in English
Within anthropology, creative processes are sometimes compared to ritual processes; they hold similar transformative potentials (Turner 1986). In the case of urban gardening, the transformative potential will be discussed in relation to ‘a capacity to aspire’ for a different future (Appadurai 2013). Through experience-near and embodied practices, children were taught about ecological issues, which by extension would help them to both imagine and be the change.
