Abstract [en]

Access to public space carries normative democratic values that is highly valued. The street, square or park is as a space where anyone and everyone can participate and communicate their political demands. Public spaces are the site for many political protests and demonstrations. However, access to public spaces can also be interpreted as a democratic mechanism were societal conflicts and inequalities are made visible. The design of public space can limit or enable activates and make it more or less available to different social categories in society. Local planning policies regulate the development of public space, but what happens when citizens take hold of a public space and wish to transform it into something new? This paper explores what transpires when a group of citizens wishes to introduce the activity urban gardening in the public space. The aim is to analyze the social logics at a citizen initiated urban garden “Bellevue Farm” in Stockholm. Using an ethnographic approach the study have focused on identifying dominating norms, relations, practices and regimes to understand the purpose, form and content of the practice.
