Ylvas StoryWalk Barckens udde

I am experimenting with the audio-walk concept. The walk is in Swedish.

I am so happy to have found the Izi-travel app for smartphones.

You can access my walk by downloading the app to a smart phone or tablet and scan this code.

You can also access the walk digitally on you computer but it is not as much fun.

Happy trails!





My Ekenäs Map

In August and September 2016 we invited some school children and some students at the local college to a series of “My Ekenäs map workshops”. Together with them we made collaborative digital maps of our home town Ekenäs in southern Finland.

With the map and photos as a base it is easier to talk about the places that function well and places that are not functioning. Google maps is a great digital tool for this and the result is easy to share.

Connected Action for the Commons

Connected Action for the Commons is an action-research program and network with six cultural organisations from across Europe and the European Cultural Foundation (ECF) as collaborating hubs.

Story Caravan is a part of the network since our project idea was selected to be along in the second Idea Camp in Botkyrka 2015 after which we received a R&D grant from the European Cultural Foundation.

Here, you can see how the network has grown over the past three years, who the people behind the network are, and what the projects and issues are they work on and find in common. Feel welcome to access this database and get inspired by the activities and connections of this growing movement of people.

Joel’s home away from home

We met up with Joel in Naturum in Ekenäs on a cold February day.  He moved to Ekenäs from the Philippines to work in his sister’s business and today he considers Ekenäs to be his home far away from home. He envisions Ekenäs as an attractive future destination for people of all ages.
