Ludvig Duregård

I work as a Project Coordinator for Subtopia within ECF’s Connected Action for the Commons programme. I started out in the advertising world (which I hated) and soon checked out and ran away with the circus, literally, working as a tour manager for Swedish contemporary circus company Cirkus Cirkör. The last few years I have been working as a Communication Director for Subtopia. When I’m not working with Subtopia, I am pre-occupied with other frameworking and content producing organisations spanning small theatre companies in the rural south of Sweden to European networks. I provide strategic support and organise events for, among others, Halmstad International Street Theatre Festival (Halmstad, SE), Trans Europe Halles (Lund, SE). I represent performing arts on the regional Creative Board of Skåne and spend most of my time in the (objectively) most beautiful place on earth (Swedish south coast).

A glimpse of another movement

While European politicians are wantonly destroying the advances made over the past seventy years of humanist progress, something else is happening in the neighbourhoods of Europe. Something that has no leader, but possesses an unstoppable direction. Ludvig Duregård reports on IdeaCamp2017.

Dear Sweden (You fucked up) at Almedalen 2016

Subtopia hits Sweden during the political week of Almedalen in a polished punk rock style backed up by the mature voices of Agnieszka Wiśniewska (Krytyka Polityczna, Poland), Mika Buljevic (Culture2Commons/Booksa, Croatia), Vitalie Sprinceana (Oberliht, Moldova) and Swedish stand-up comedian Özz Nujen.

This is Alby: a documentary

The festival This Is Alby, now on it’s third iteration, has from the very beginning been created in defiance of a singular metropolitan (Stockholm) identity and narrative.
