    Christianias forskerpark

    The aim of the Christiania Researcher in Residence project (CRIR) is to involve artists, researchers and academics in an open, critical and reflective dialogue around the free town Christiania in Copenhagen, and to feed new creative and critical thinking into the public realm. During the last year the CRIR house has hosted researchers from Denmark, Norway, England, Belgium, Lithuania, Sweden, Austria, France and The United States with a particular interest in Christiania as a research area. Christiania’s insight and experience into local organisation, alternative architecture, lifestyle, culture, sustainable environments, quality of life, democracy and innovation is unique in the world and could generate important knowledge that may inspire new urban thinking. Researchers are invited to live in Christiania for short periods, depending on the nature and needs of their proposed projects. They are asked to consider their project’s expected visibility and how it may contribute to public debate – whether in the form of an academic text, a public lecture, an event, an artwork, a conference or an exhibition. Applicants will also be asked to consider how their project can be communicated internally in Christiania. Residents will have access to support and guidance as well as a historical archive from a network of Christiania residents. Various venues and public spaces may be available for events, exhibitions and public presentations.
