Kalejdohill is a pre-housing project that develops the place long before the new houses around Kvarnbacken are being built. The purpose is to create a meeting place both for and together with the locals in Järfälla, where dialogs can be raised and ideas made in to reality. As the name suggests, this meeting place is meant to be like a kaleidoscope – shifting, flexible, interesting and colourful.
Inhabitant Zero is a call for proposals for a research residency. Could you be the first inhabitant of Kalejdohill? An international jury will select 5 proposals, each for a month-long residency in the Yellow House of Kalejdohill.
Kalejdohill imagines a society where the citizens are inquisitive, involved and pro-active in the making of the places where they live. Therefore, we are inviting individuals or teams to come and stay for a month in the Yellow House on a hill in central Jakobsberg, as a way of introducing the idea of an involved citizen in the post-welfare state landscape of Sweden. For the duration of the residency, the resident or team of residents, will be asked to produce a study, a diary, an investigation or something the organizers haven't thought of. What it is like to live in a foreign country, in a development before it is developed?
Inhabitant Zero is open to graduates and professionals from the fields of Urbanism, Fine Art, Design, Architecture, Sociology, Migration Politics, Archaeology, and any other background you may find relevant. They are looking for curious individuals or groups interested in how the world works.
The studio is the house and can be used as the resident(s) wishes.
The selected individuals or teams would stay in the cabin for a month, and provided with basic amenities (electricity, heating and wi-fi), as well as the collaboration of the municipality of Jarfalla on various needs that may arise.
There is a local public library near by. The materials are to be covered with the stipend.
