This effort is led by Blivande, a creative community and event space in Stockholm. We had our work disrupted by the crisis, leaving our house empty. We decided to put our community and equipment to good use as we realized that the need for personal protective equipment is so extreme that every gown and visor matters. Everyone involved is volunteering their time and we donate everything we produce to clinics and retirement homes. So far, we have produced hundreds of gowns for healthcare workers.
Doing this work for the community is in line with the purpose of Blivande. We see ourselves as a part of civil society, and our goal is to create abundance through working together so that we can all be open and generous.
