In the project: “Gemensamhetslokalen” – a community space with a future in the sharing economy? – the researchers will investigate the history, present and future of the community space and whether these spaces has the potential to form part of the infrastructure in Sweden’s new strategy for circular economy.

The group also includes Dan Hallemar, architect, journalist, critic and publicist, Veronica Hejdelind, curator, producer and author and the photographer Ylva Sundgren.
