What is Blivande?

Always Becoming

House Blivande is a center for participatory art, culture, and organizations in Stockholm. We believe that community is essential to wellbeing. That’s what Blivande is for, a house where you can work, create and socialize.

Our participatory workspace Studio Beta re-defines the concept of a workspace, it is a place where you come and create in togetherness the reality you want to be living/working in.

Studio House Blivande is ready for you! We are located at Södra Hamnvägen 9 (see map), close to Gärdet.

  1. Introduce yourself. Either by a post in the forum, in an email to sofia@blivande.com or by making an appointment with @SofiaAnner and dropping by the house. We’re looking to create a good and diverse community, and if there is space we will invite you to become a member.

  2. Try it out for a day or two. See how it feels. When you feel ready to commit, sign up with the invite link we give you and approve the terms and conditions.

  3. Choose your membership, fixed or flexible. Both memberships are billed in advance to your card every three months.

  4. You are now, as are we all, always becoming. Register your company here and get your mail to House Blivande. Enjoy the coffee and wifi. Explore our workshop spaces and improve you woodworking skills, do some sowing or build something electric. Come and go as you please. Bring your guests and clients whevever you want - you are a part of a community now.

This is your desk, but when you feel like exploring, you are just as welcome to roam around as the next person. Comfortable couches and curiosity cabinets await you, and your stuff will be just as you left it once you return.

Your own glorious electric adjustable desk and 27-inch monitor.

Access to Studio Tau

Studio Tau is a 300 square meter arts workshop and maker space. Whether you are are a full-time artist who also needs an office space for administration or a full-time programmer with a passion for woodworking, Studio Beta offers possibilities that no other co-working space comes close to. As a bonus, you also have access to The Node, the largest space for participatory culture in Scandinavia.

Tau is an art space, maker space and community space in Stockholm to foster creation in an intimate and supportive environment, driven by the ethos of participatory culture. Tau is largely run by its members, together with Blivande.

Studio Tau is a curated space for members and their occasional guests. Your first step towards becoming a member is introducing yourself and getting to know the community. Why don’t you go ahead and introduce yourself in a post here in our forum? What do you want to create? Once we’ve had a conversation and gotten to know each other, you’ll likely be invited to become a member. You can then go sign up for a membership, for 800 SEK per month, paid quarterly. Message @hampus to get a tour of Tau and what we have to offer.

There are also a limited number of fixed desks and rooms at Tau for our resident artists. Let us know if that is what you are looking for, and we can let you know if there are any openings available. You can message @hampus here on the forum.

Blivande is one of the most unique event spaces in Stockholm. We can host parties, conferences, private gatherings, club nights or concerts. We have excellent audio and visual equipment and can take care of booking great DJs and entertainers. Make an inquiry to @hampus on the forum or to hampus@blivande.com to learn more.

Noden is a radical experiment in community building. It started in late 2015 and has since then become a techno temple, a burner playground and a year around place for a wide variety of co-created and non-profit workshops and events . Amongst countless other things, real or imagined. What unites the activities taking place is that they are all created with the intention of bringing people together, ideally contributing towards reinforcing a sense of purpose and meaning in our everyday lives. Becoming a member of Noden is the fastest way to join the community. Noden is its own non-profit association, independent from Blivande, but in a close symbiosis. Join the Noden community for free weekly workshops at Blivande.
