Jalla upp på scen (2009)

Jalla upp på scen (JUPS) is an annual talent show, hosted by the grassroots organization RGRA. The main objective of JUPS is to facilitate meetings between young people (aged 13-20) from every part of Malmö. The notion is that such meetings will help build a common understanding and reduce prejudice.

In 2009, the Malmö Collaborative Cross-Media project was involved in the event. We have been trying to find anwers to, for instance, how a hip hop community can engage more regularly in street journalism across multiple media channels, how important a central media platform is and what effects such media production will have on the visibility of the organization.

Malmö Festival Interventions (2008)

Malmöfestivalen is a one-week street festival held every year in mid-August in Malmö. In 2008, Inkonst worked with researchers and designers at Malmö University and with TAT to create a multi-perspective view of the festival by facilitating and collecting video blogs.

Six “reporters” were chosen and equipped with cellphone video broadcast technology, and their impressions and interpretations from the festival were collected as Youtube playlists.

Musikhjälpen (2008)

Musikhjälpen is a public service format originating in the Netherlands and aiming at raising funds for refugees shortly before Christmas by offering the audience the opportunity to pay for a song request. The first Musikhjälpen in Sweden was held in December 2008 as a collaboration between Sveriges Radio, Sveriges Television and Radiohjälpen. Radio hosts spent a week in a glass cage in central Malmö, taking requests from passers-by and through web and SMS call-in. The event was broadcast live in radio and television.

There was a whole range of side events in connection with Musikhjälpen, and Malmö University researchers and designers among other things convened experiments in street journalism in collaboration with Good World.
