"About suffering they were never wrong,
The old Masters: how well they understood
Its human position: how it takes place"
It has been a long held ambition to realise the construction of the Megalopolis Project. The initial project was created more that ten years ago. It was given a `test run exhibition´ in 2011 with the construction of the Graveyard Installation courtesy of the late Modtar Projects situated in the Latin Quarter, Copenhagen. Ten years later The Megalopolis Project concept has been taken off the shelf of possibilities and placed firmly on the work table. The construction of the Megalopolis Project will be made possible by a creative consortium of ;
Galvin Harrison + T.N.G. / Stenbroens Forening / F C Y N
The Megalopolis individual sculptures are flexible in design which allows the facilitation of a varying number of possible hybrid projects. The objective is that construction kits act as the creative catalyst and enabler for an ambitious social fusion to take place with the primary consideration being education, creative awareness and personal empowerment.
Galvin Harrison + T.N.G. (The Next Generation) is a collective installation project. It is a community based project initiated by Galvin Harrison and is located in the Nørrebro district of Copenhagen with the objective of changing and improving the lives and futures of people who are in the main of Middle Eastern and African origin. One of the underlying and problematic issues that resides within all young people that have inherited the social and stigmatic DNA of the indigenous Middle Eastern and African migrant is that of personal identity. It is with the hope and the firm conviction that the forming of Galvin Harrison + T.N.G. will travel some of the required distance in instilling a fundamental sense of understanding, pride and profound self awareness in all of the participating contributors to the project.
STENBROENS FORENING (Stonebridge Association) is a diverse association for both sports, culture & art. We have created a young children's literature and motoric and linguistic stimulation
concept entitled `Troldebold´ in collaboration with 2200 bedtime stories along with Girl's Football on the Roof with the kindergarten Krible Krable and a further institution Barndommens Land on the roof at Vermundsgade. Foot tennis, Badminton, Yoga, Football and E-sport have been part of the program in association with the youth club FCYN in Nørrebrohallen. Stenbroens Forening has also been a creative bridge builder for the T.N.G. (The Next Generation) art workshop in encouraging and arranging for young people to be involved in several specific art projects.
The youth club FCYN located at Nørrebro, Copenhagen opened its doors to the area's young people in August 2016. The youth club is the result of a merger of several of the area's former youth clubs. Therefore, a large part of the members are gathered from different parts of the district and from different schools.
We have children and young people, mainly from Nørrebro Park School and Rådmandsgade School, which are the two municipal schools in the area as well as several different private schools.
We have members aged 9-17 years and are rated at approx. 300 places for the 9-14 year old´s in the centre and 30 places for the 14-17 year old´s in our small Youth Club.
At FCYN we have a wealth of nationalities and see ourselves as a multi ethnic and diverse youth club as reflected both in the staff group and among the attending members.
