Hej, I’m Vera and my goal as a cultural analyst is to improve the public environment for the better. How and where do people move, and why? If social aspects of planning and urban design are taken into consideration, we can find solutions that make the public space more social, safe and integrated.
My main professional interest has been to use qualitative methods in order to analyze culture and arts in relation to power dynamics. I have a BA in Arts Management where I wrote my thesis on the power balance between free theatre groups in Malmö in relation to institutional theatre. During my master’s studies, I also developed a passion for museum design and mobility.
I believe that power relations, gender, intersectionality and cultural capital are conceptual “glasses” through which we, as social researchers, can dive into the most pressing social issues.
