Hamar Experience 12 | Cultural Rucksack and art in public space

Category: ⚐ EN+dreamhamar+events

This evening the energy of the young and the inspiration of the muses make a somewhat different Hamar Experience, but don’t be afraid, for it is what happens when you have so many things to talk about with such nice guests.

Kathrine Berg is a lovely woman and artist who is working with the 1,300 kids from the Cultural Rucksack Project. By the way, the Cultural Rucksack will finish this week and we are looking forward to seeing the results.

Inger Lise works on a different project about art and youth. Whatever she has to say, it is going to be interesting. And yes, we are letting her tell you the details about the project. We think it’s more interesting that way.

And there is more, because next week ACTIVITIES workshops begin and you are going to get a preview on what is going to happen there – What? You haven’t registered yet? It is free, it is fun and you’ll meet interesting people while talking about Hamar. And we might just invite you to coffee and cake, too.

There will also be a surprise for the technology oriented, so don’t forget your smart phone or your tablet pc.

Let the muses and the younsters inspire you this evening at 18:00h on Hamar Experience 12.

Hamar Experience 11 | Technology workshop

Category: ⚐ EN+dreamhamar+events

Last week the TECHNOLOGY workshop took place and Hamar response was even better than expected. We also had a workshop with students from Bergen School of Architecture, who resulted in a free lunch on Stortorget – with a cow as special guest!

On today’s Hamar Experience 11 Belinda Tato will share pictures and anecdotes from the workshop and the free lunch.

And of course, because Hamar is the star of dreamhamar, Belinda will share the spotlight with a citizen who participated on TECHNOLOGY workshop – Morten Fridstrøm. He will tell us about his experience and if the workshop was everything he expected!

Unfortunately, we will not be able to bring the cow to Hamar Experience. Nevertheless, you’ve got a date with the progress of dreamhamar on Monday, at 18:00h on

See you this evening!

Ilumina tu barrio: la casa luminosa | #usde #colaborativa

Ilumina tu barrio: la casa luminosa | un proyecto desarrollado por Gildo Seisdedos (@gildoseisdedosen el marco del experience Facilitar la Ciudad Colaborativa, dirigido por Adolfo Chautón (@adolfochauton).


Ilumina tu barrio: la casa luminosa Iluminación, espacio público y colaboración público privada

El alumbrado público está de plena actualidad. En un entorno de cambio de modelo energético, es uno de los principales focos de ineficiencia de las ciudades desde una perspectiva doble: cuantitativa (derroche y contaminación lumínica) y cualitativo (cambio de tecnología de incandescencia a led). Cambiar bombillas por leds no es sólo un buen negocio para los proveedores de material de iluminación y el medio ambiente (ahorro de un 80% de emisiones de CO2) sino también para las ciudades (importantes ahorros eléctricos). Sin embargo, los gestores urbanos ven el cambio con recelo pues piensan que menos luz equivale a inseguridad, tristeza y, en consecuencia, menos votos.
