The residencies are organised in order to have an external view on the potentials of the neighbourhoods. The residencies will foster creativity and experiment in cultural mapping and participatory collaborations. Gaming, among other things, will be used to involve children and young people to empower their creativity in finding the best solutions for local challenges as well as finding new opportunities.

The residencies will:

  • Add value to the community with creative work by helping to change the perception and profile of the host community for both its residents and outsiders.
  • Create shared Baltic Sea Region value and identity, making a direct dialogue between community residents and creative short-terms visitors possible.
  • Contribute to the development of the UCP Demonstrator Projects.
