Decoration project of a socially burdened neighborhood in outer Nørrebro in Copenhagen. In 2010 Copenhagen based artist Thomas Pålsson was asked to help decorate the street of Alderosgade in collaboration with the local kids.

With help from the local kids

Pålsson has a unique approach to every project he takes on. For this project, he wanted to work closely with the local community and invited all the kids of the neighborhood to participate in a workshop where they developed the ideas and drew the figures that eventually turned into the final piece.

After the workshop, Pålsson gathered all the drawings, put his own colorful spin on them, and planned out the design of where everything would go. After the final design was created, Pålsson painted everything in and invited all the kids to come play on the new installation.
