Hässelby lies some 20 kilometres west of central Stockholm. The Council of United Creoles wants to build a new meeting place, an outdoor platform for culture, where they can relate their own narratives. They explore issues such as norm criticism and alienation.
Hässelby is part of the Hässelby-Vällingby district, comprising areas such as Hässelby strand, Hässelby gård and Hässelby villastad. Most of the multi-dwelling units in Hässelby gård were built in the mid 1950s. The underground station was completed in 1958.
The applicant, the Council of United Creoles, is a network that has emerged in recent years and who wants to overcome colonial and racist thought patterns. They define Creole identity as a fusion of different traditional ethnic, religious and cultural identities.
