I’ve never been here before and I don’t really know anyone in this city either. But it’s another one of Europe’s creative hubs and I definitely want to cover it during this journey. Please send me recommendations if you know any of the cities most creative people.
Even though corporate culture has snowballed in London, with dizzying rent prices and astronomical cost of living as a result, it’s still one of the most creative places I know. I’m always inspired after a visit and I’m looking forward to present many creative people from here. One person I hope I’ll be able to present is mural painter Camille Walala, who’s taking over London one building at a time.
Berlin has been a creative hub for a long time, dating back to a legacy after WW2 when it was a city full of ruined buildings that no one cared about, which made it affordable to live in even for artists with no income. More than two decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the creative life of the city has exploded. If this will continue or if the city’s creative spirit already have been eaten by gentrification is up for everyone to decide.
Two alluring cities, one in each country, connected by a bridge, forming a very creative region. I hope to be able to present a number of highly creative places & people here. One thing I know for sure is that I’m going to test the ski slope built on top of a power plant(!) in central Copenhagen. This idea ranks high in the category of bizarre mashups that shouldn't work, but somehow still does.
Sometimes Stockholm is called the creative capital of the world. It’s the capital of Sweden for sure, but I’m not so certain about the first one though. However, the city has undoubtedly been the birthplace to a lot of innovation, especially in tech (after Silicon Valley, Stockholm produces more billion-dollar companies per capita than any other region in the world).
My first destination, where the mission is to pick up the tiny house that I’m going to travel with. While there I will also make a video presenting the creative people behind Eco Tiny House and Getaway Transylvania. A bunch of skilled carpenters, passionate about bringing the Tiny House Movement to Europe.
