Current project

Ale Municipality/Ulrika Jansson and Henrik Wallgren

Project 1: a 24-hour innovation lab in Ale municipality, from 12:00 to 12:00 during the 3-4 of October of 2013, led by the artist Ulrika Jansson.
 
The challenge of the lab was:
How do we dig where we stand? | What is the core of Ale? | What is the DNA of Ale? | How can we strengthen and define the DNA of Ale?

The research and question-setting of the project supported the vision to create “Destination Ale” – an attractive Ale to live, work, and visit.

The innovation lab was produced with the support of KiiCS (Knowledge Incubation in Innovation and Creation for Science), a cooperation project within the FP7 programme of financing from the European Union.

Project 2: An 18-months project with the challenge to create attractiveness to live, work and visit Ale. Result:

WebFab Ale

Why?
