Folkevirke is a cross-party organisation with circles throughout the country where cultural, social and political subjects are brought up for discussion. Project days and excursions are planned and presented by Folkevirke. In several local Folkevirke circles literary subjects are regularly discussed. In most cases the books are presented by a member of the literary circle, but in some cases the author in person is presented at the meeting. For many years Folkevirke has arranged meetings between children and grandparents, who spend a week together during the school holidays in October (week 42). The activities offered by Folkevirke are being developed in close cooperation with active members of the organisation. So in case you have a good idea, don’t hesitate to contact us, and together we will find out if it can be carried out.
ÖGAT NGO located in the multicultural suburb of Gamlestaden in the northeast of Gothenburg, is to create together across cultural boundaries, we work slowly perhaps not having a common language at first and finally being able to play a song together as a band or compose a textile work of art. Here you can find each other for cross-border projects, new study circles or inspiring workshops. We believe in collaboration and the strength of doing things together. Today, we work mainly with the mediation of artists to cultural actors, anchor new partners and be part of various project applications that will create a lasting foundation for our association to develop. The form of association is non-profit and you who are members can get involved at different levels. In addition to the association’s work to produce open cultural events, a curious investigation is conducted of other actors’ activities, musicians, artists, organizers in other associations and knowledge in the area. We visit associations, integrate musicians, look for artists and together create open and easily accessible evenings. ÖGAT has an aspiration to work for a life where we and others can feel that everything and everyone in some way belongs together despite differences. Simply described: an atmosphere in which everyone can feel seen and accepted, which makes people relax and feel community so that creativity has room to multiply beyond all boundaries and performance requirements. Feel warmly welcome to jump in! We are a hub in East Gothenburg’s cultural life where all collaborations are possible between art forms and cultures.
Burgårdens Gymnasium it’s a upper secondary school in Göteborg with mainly vocational training for young people, aged 16-19, with around 1000 students. Students can choose between for instance programs that educate nursery attendants, security, fashion design, hairdressers, make-up artists or animal keepers. We have an introduction program for young immigrants where they can work with the aim of entering a vocational training program within 2 years´ time. There is also the option of combining theoretical studies with internship two days every week as an apprentice. About 60% of the students have an immigrant background. Some have arrived in Sweden with their parents as refugees, others were born in Sweden. Many students have special difficulties in learning (anxiety disorder, attention deficit, autism, dyslexia or dyscalculia). The teachers therefore work in teams where they develop new training methods that better fit this group of students than traditional education.
