English abstract
In July 2013, Malmö, Sweden, a group of asylum seekers and undocumented migrants initiated a march from Malmö to Stockholm called Asylstafetten. The marchers demanded that their stories of migration, asylum and undocumentedness be heard and transferred into action. Many activities were organised for the duration of the 34 day-long march including the crafting workshops. Through essays and conversations with participants of the march, this publication portrays multiple narratives about the workshops; the spaces they occupied, the practices and ideas they generated as well as their political potential to come. More Info: This text is part of a collaborative book project inspired by a series of crafting workshops held during Asylstafetten - a 34 day-long walking march from Malmö to Stockholm, Sweden during Summer 2013.
Swedish abstract
I juli 2013, Malmö, tog en grupp asylsökande och papperslösa migranter initiativet till en vandring från Malmö till Stockholm – Asylstafetten. Vandrarna krävde att deras berättelser om migration, asyl och papperslöshet skulle höras och transformeras till handling. Ett flertal aktiviteter organiserades under den 34-dagars långa marschen, där hantverks-workshoppar ingick. Genom texter och konversationer med deltagare i vandringen, porträtterar den här publikationen flera skildringar av dessa workshoppar; platserna de intog, utövandet och idéerna de frambringade liksom dess kommande politiska potential.
