Hedemarkedet and DIT

The wish to make a local market has been strong in Hedehusene for years but an art project that didn’t really have a market as its objective made local people meet and discuss the future of the town. Hedehusene has been loosing shops from the main street for years and the market thus fulfils a strong local wish for a more lively city.

At the opening the local mayor engaged in a fight with kids from a local roleplaying club.

When we started our CiTyBee “prototype” it was obvious to do that on the first market day in 2012.

A year after the opening of the market Supertanker made a “Do It Together – DIT” action there where we tried to design and build a prototype for a market stall “in and for public space”. This short movie documents the action and was used as our contribution to a conference “Urban Platform” organised by Citymine(d) in Brussels.
