Site developement by means of culture in rural areas : A case study on the activities of Gula Huset in Uddebo. (English)
Urbanization and the flight of the creative class drains the countryside when it comes to creativity and talent. Especially the young leave sleepy societies. Richard Florida claims that the city attracts the creative class and enables for economic growth to flourish. Robert Putnam adds to the picture by saying social capital might be equally effective as nourishment for growth. In Uddebo, a rural village in the south of Sweden one combines the two creating a vivid society where creativity flies high and ideas fertilize each other’s. Whilst saving an old house from decaying the enthusiastic economic association called Gula Huset combines arts, culture, work, games and society in a creative project denying all standards. By working in a way that has similarities to cultural planning they make the most of their village. As the demographics change to the better more and more functions are built into the society.
