The project owner, Stockholm City Archives is part of the Founding Partner Stockholm City.
Stockholm’s city archive has the ambition to be Sweden’s leading archive by being most keen and relevant, as well as modernest, most accessible, outgoing and user-oriented. During 2017-2018, a new public archive and arena for conversations focusing on Stockholm’s historical and future urban development will be built at Liljeholmskajen. In accordance with Stockholm’s digital strategy – Smart and connected city, this archive should be digital, social, environmental, democratic and economically sustainable, and be at the forefront of using ICT, thereby meeting the goals of its own vision.
The purpose of the project was to create new networks, using a smaller and larger workshop, and then develop a sufficiently comprehensive and useful digital strategy that will make the new archive the most important and relevant, most modern, most accessible, outward and user-oriented at the forefront and a contributing part of the city’s work to be a smart and connected city.
The project therefore consists of the design, invitation, implementation and documentation of two workshops, one smaller and one larger, where parties from academia, business and public administration participate.
The project does not contain any implementation material but has been handed over to Stockholm’s city archives after the two completed workshops.
