Lundakarnevalen

WHEN
Lundakarnevalen is a city festival and one of the biggest voluntary events in Europe. I was on the steering committée with the purpose of enabling the 6000 university students arranging the festivies. This responsibility meant an exciting roller coaster ride that required building up everything from scratch, such as the artistic vision, means of communication, organisational culture, strategy and structure. Other than learning how to walk, it was my biggest learning journey so far. It taught me the of the most helpful tools I have as a creative person today - trusting and listening. Some of the things which were produced under my tutelage are presented below in a list and images.
