Drawing workshop with children in Barsebäck
In the end of March, researchers from Linköping university and curators from Malmö Museums arranged a drawing workshop with children from a school located five kilometres from the Barsebäck NPP in southern Sweden. The children were encouraged to draw and write based on the question: “What do you think of when someone says Barsebäck nuclear power plant?”.
The workshop resulted in many creative and thoughtful drawings as well as insightful oral accounts. The day ended with a vernissage to which the children’s older relatives were invited. The material will enhance the understanding of what nuclear cultural heritage entails and how it is created by different generations within the local community. The drawings will become part of the museum archive.
Later this spring, participants in the 2nd NuSPACES Workshop in Sweden will have the opportunity to see the drawings exhibited in Malmö Museums.
The organisers are thankful for the rewarding and inspiring conversations with young and old, and for the great collaboration with the school.
