Safe Places

Wed 30 Sep —Sun 15 Aug

Note! The exhibition is temporarily closed due to water damage

The exhibition is based on how children describe, experience, and portray their home and living environments. The child’s perspective is lacking in general from research, but Safe Places is based on a qualitative research study with active participation by 10–13 year-old pupils in municipal schools in Umeå, where the children document places in their living environments that they feel are positive, supportive, and safe. The exhibition examines also social inequality and highlights the connection between the physical and social environments.

Safe Places is a collaboration with Kulturverket and the Department of Social Work at Umeå University.
