Dansbana!, 2013-present
Public dance spaces + organization
Most public places built for outdoor activites in Sweden such as skate parks and parkour parks are dominated by boys. The organization Dansbana! was founded out of a will to change that. We know that many girls like to dance and wanted to create places together with them and different dance communities. We imagined an updated version of the traditional Swedish building type for dancing, the dansbana, adapted for many dances and and dancers. Dansbana! was initiated and is run by architects Anna Fridolin and Teres Selberg and Anna Pang. See further www.dansbana.se.
