Wiola Ujazdowska, "The Scandinavian Dream"

New Podcast | Belonging, Structure and Racism

Are our public spaces inclusive? Who has the power to take up space? Who has a voice? Can everyone say that they feel represented and that they feel they belong?

In a new podcast series the Reykjavik City Library raises questions relating to structural racism, cultural narratives, privileges and belonging. Artists, writers and activists examine inclusivity within the cultural sphere of Reykjavik. With the podcast the Library opens up a discursive space, guided by creative visions and innovative thoughts.

Listen to the Inclusive Public Spaces podcast here or on your usual podcast platform. New episodes published every Saturday, four in total (including the Introduction).
