The Future of Trosvikstranda?

During Culture Night in Fredrikstad, Østfold International Theater and Trosvikstranda Utvikling AS invite you to imagine what Trosvikstranda could be like in a close future. Join us for art, atmosphere, music and refreshments!

The area between Evjekaia and Værstebrua is being developed: In a near future, new homes and urban spaces with commerce, catering and culture will be built here. Did you know that you have a right to state your mind about the plans for the area?

During Kulturnatt (Culture Night) Fredrikstad, Østfold Internasjonale Teater in cooperation with Trosvikstranda utvikling aim to give you a small taste of what Trosvikstranda could be like, while also asking what you think will make Trosvikstranda a better place?

In Search of Democracy 3.0

Let us draw your ideas for Trosvikstranda!

In Search of Democracy 3.0 is an interactive installation by the Dutch company New Heroes. Here, professional illustrators are waiting for you to contribute with your ideas for future’s society: What do you think will make Trosvikstranda a good place to live? After a conversation of 15-20 min, your thoughts will be transformed into an illustration, which becomes part of the interactive installation. The aim of the project is to promote a great diversity of voices. All illustrations will be digitally handed over to Trosvikstranda Utvikling AS and Fredrikstad municipality as inspiration for the future district.
