WorldPride Park at Folkets Park was a playful and inspiring place in the heart of Malmö. At WorldPride Park, you could enjoy art exhibitions and imaginative performances, meet your loves ones for a picnic on the grass or on one of the parks many outdoor cafes. For the younger crowd, we had activities, talks and workshops at Amiralen throughout the festival. In WorldPride Park, there was something for everyone!
The WorldPride Park’s performance program consisted of eight acts, each one reshaping the park’s collective consciousness in its own way. Inspired by the history of Folkets Park and the shared memories inherited in the space, we aimed to explore the norms that influence the public domain. The program shone a light on the temporary and embodies the non-linear. Curated by Emilia Thorin and Matilda Tjäder in collaboration with Folkets Park. Find the full Performance programme here.
Can you hear them moving, can you feel their breath, can you see them running towards you? Starting from living archives, the exhibition asked; what really exists on the other side of the interrogation point? Is it stillness? In the city common tensions of queer existence are displayed in the form of sculpture, installation, textile, photography. The exhibition presented a moment for the audience to encounter the deeply private, the difficult, the forgotten. Find the full programme here.
