We are an award winning organisation within the Umeå Municipality working with children under the teaching method of 'Kids tell the pro's what to do'. Unusual collaborations have led to new artistic expressions such as a Blog Opera, an Ice Hockey Musical and an Invisible Food project.
The project continues. We have had workshops, city tours, written texts and develop songs among other things.

About the project Gatsmart
We work with teenagers and young adults with special needs. Together we will let them tell their story of Umeå, their experiences and their whises.
We will do this by creating texts, films, images, radio programs, music and other artwork. We won't focus on the person behind the piece of art, articel or radio show, but rather make it obvious that we share this town with people that are not like us - or exactly like us!
This project has been possible through Arvsfonden. Thank you! Thanks also to our partners: Gymnasiesärskolan, Fritid för alla, VästerbottensKuriren, P4 Västerbotten, Umeå Guideförening, Littfest andUmeå European FilmFestival.
