Together with a group of women, dance artist Polena Kolia Petersen created our second community procejt 'female (with) space.'
The project started with an open workshop for women in the Sundsvall area. A large number of participants then resulted in a smaller core group. This group met several times a week, both physically and digitally, to create the community project. It was of great importance for Polena Kolia Petersen to create the project together with the participants, as well as letting everyone's voices be heard. The community project originated from the question of how the public space shapes women and how women shape the public space.
"I have a great interest in exploring how the anchoring of dance in everyday life can enable us to develop more sustainable structures for a common future"
– Polena Kolia Petersen.
