About Stofan

Through the experiemental co-curational work in Stofan, the library aims to diversify its program and have new users shape the space as well as the discussions taking place at the library - making the library a relevant place for more people.

What is Stofan?

Stofan is an experimental project where the library invites different partners to create the social space they would like to see in the library.
Once a month a user opens a new space that reflects their needs, a space they feel comfortable in; a temporay public living room, with their own rules.
Stofan is open to other users who can observe and join the conversation, participate and experience the temporary space on their own terms.

This is a place for citizenship in the making, where you can negotiate ideas of belonging, perform your identity, connect with others and communicate beyond language. In our conversations at Stofan we use all our senses to explore the surroundings, ideas and understandings. 

How do we work?

A group of partners are invided to collaborate and co-curate a „conversation/happening“  within a given focus:

Partners take part in two think tanks for discussion, understanding and developing ideas and the surroundings.
The co-curational process includes two preparatory meetings on location with the project manager.
