More about Haninge
Haninge municipality is located near the coast about 20 km south of Stockholm city centre. The regional centre in the municipality is Handen that as a location functions as the commercial centre and service-centre. Sprawled Haninge contains settlements like Brandbergen, Jordbro, Västerhaninge, Vendelsö and Dalarö. Not to forget archepelagic Haninge with populated islands as Ornö, Muskö and Utö. Haninge is primarily known by its beautiful archepelago and its islands. Interesting enough, the slogan connected to the municipality is “Haninge – not just an archepelago”. There is a declared intention to be known as a municipality for more than just being an area for recreation and tourism, or more specifically, to be regarded as a pleasant attarctive area to settle down and live in.
As other suburbian areas around Stockholm Innercity Haninge municipality contains both a horisontal and vertical mosaic of habitats. Urban and rural, low-income areas and high-income areas, areas with different compositions of the population in relation to socio-economic factors and living conditions, not the least those connected to class and ethnicity. The municipality´s markedly differential character means that there isn´t any strong shared identity connected to the fact one being a Haninge-inhabitant.
The cultural institutional infrastructure encompasses different museums, libraries in different parts of the municipality and, important, Haninge Cultural house with its Arthall and library, located in Haninge centre. Culture for children and different youth policy initiatives are an explicit political priority.
The political and administrative cultural/mental milieu is open-minded with a benevolent culture policy ambition. This is clearly formulated in a new political and progressive cultural policy program from 2014 for the period 2015-2025, focusing on culture as an important societal developmental resource. The necessity of the presence of professional artists and a professional artlife is explicitly underlined, as well as a cultural life characterized by a high degree of participation. All this also as closely connected to civil society in its different forms, with its organisations, associations and affiliations.
Corners Haninge is an actionfield that surely can be characterized as an open space and place for precisely the type of initiatives, events and interventions that Corners is contributing. Art and culture is welcomed. Questions of strenghtening, and quests for, not the least (attractive) Image and (common) Identity, specifically through cultural and artbased measures, are on the political and developmental agenda. Corners and its diverse projects has here a political and developmentally as well as culturally fertile ground for applying, testing and deepening, its own measures, models and meanings, in acting in situ in the concrete and, remembering the kind of mission involved, to try to make a difference with lasting effects.
