DEBATE: VILLA KULTUR X CPH:DOX: CAN WE BREATHE LIFE INTO DERELICT BUILDINGS?

115 min

Can cultural life counter gentrification and breathe life into derelict buildings? Who should the city be for today and in the future? And who will ultimately decide how the city develops? This is what we are debating in Villa Kultur on Østerbro, when the villa opens its doors, serves cocktails and plays 60s music in a tribute to the iconic Chelsea Hotel in New York City. Meet the founder of Kulturdistriktet and Vida Local and driving force behind the project GivRum Jesper Koefoed-Melson, City Architect of Copenhagen Camilla van Deurs and director of jaja architects Josefine Lykke Jensen. Moderator: Anne Katrine Harders, Programme Manager, DAC. NB. This conversation is in Danish.
