  • Negotiating obstacles in the making of a parkour site at Leitet –
           children and young people’s participation in area development
    • Authors: Nordgreen L; Økland M, Henriksbø K, et al.
      Pages: 424 - 445
      Abstract: The article is based on the designing of a parkour site at Leitet, in the borough Laksevåg, in Bergen, Norway. It explains the different stages of participation and the process of developing the Leitet parkour site. The Municipality of Bergen plays a significant role in involving children and young people in area development. Dialogue and collaboration with residents and other actors in the area are identified as essential approaches. Laksevåg was given priority on the basis of several years of mapping and statistical research, confirming the importance of a comprehensive and coherent area development, both social and physical. The area is distinguished, negatively, from Bergen as a whole by several variables. The article also emphasizes the connection between living conditions and good social networks, active involvement, and participation in society.

  • Community art with young people in a divided residential area in Sweden
           – the emergence of Art-PIMPA
    • Authors: Stenbom E; Turunen P.
      Pages: 446 - 464
      Abstract: Increasing sociospatial polarization, segregation and marginalization are challenging community workers to respond to complex social needs and problems across the world. This article focuses on examining sociospatial polarization and community art as a form of community work in Sweden through the case study of Konst-PIMPA (Art-PIMPA). The inquiry studies how Art-PIMPA emerged and developed, working together with young people in a sociospatially divided residential area in the city of Norrköping. The study shows that community art deals with imagination, creativity and co-creation, in order to explore, express and visualize the invisible factors in social development and change. The focus of Art-PIMPA was on participation, human rights and the democratic right to self-expression, requiring a glocal cosmopolitan outlook, which includes both global and local aspects. This meant taking an ethical–political stance of recognizing our common humanity and rights as citizens of the world regardless of background or context. Additionally, the study is a reminder of the need to generate a structural analysis of both exogenous and endogenous forces that impact our ‘glocal world’, in which global and local forces interact daily.

  • Community music therapy as participatory practice in a child welfare
           setting – a Norwegian case study
    • Authors: Krüger V.
      Pages: 465 - 481
      Abstract: In this article, I will focus upon a case narrative described as ‘Trine’, and her participation in a community group called Come Closer. I relate the discussion within a broader context of Community work and Community music therapy. The article combines vignettes taken from music therapy practice and various theoretical views. I argue that music has a potential as a force for social change and spans an unlimited number of combinations. Music can function as a practice that involves the activity of personal reflection processes and music can function as a sociopolitical force, able to change social realities and alter power relations. In sum, the article concludes that three strategies which might be appropriate for further investigation and implementation regarding music as resource in child welfare work. First, there is the need for an individual strategy. The individual strategy includes person-oriented activities such as conversation, song writing, and the use of music technology. Second, there is the need for a community-oriented strategy wherein activities such as playing in a band or song writing comes into focus. Third, there is a need for a strategy which implies working with networks, social environments, and power relations. The third strategy is very closed related to ideals taken from a traditional community work perspective, whereas ideas such as Arnsteins ladder of participation is prominent.

  • Applying creativity and physical arts in community work education
    • Authors: Breivik J; Sudmann T.
      Pages: 482 - 499
      Abstract: In the Masters programme in Community Work at Western Norway University of Applied Sciences, Bergen, students and teachers engage in interactive learning and problem-solving together. Paolo Freire showed us how learning is achieved through critical dialogue and praxis, i.e. action and reflection. Two different experimental workshops offered to both regular and visiting students, used alternative forms of dialogue and action. Through dialogues produced with words, bodily gestures, props and movements, and reflection upon action, generative themes emerged. These themes concerned ecological and social challenges faced by community workers. Students in the first workshop engaged in ‘skip diving’ with an aim of transforming skipped food into a gourmet food festive dinner, and in the second workshop students and teachers chose to create a socially relevant parade around the main street of a city borough. In both workshops artists with experiences in community participation were involved. The article discusses how arts-based workshops facilitate creation of context-sensitive tools for community workers as creative agents of change.

  • ‘Welcome in my back Yard’ – the role of affective practices and
           learning in an experiment with local social integration in Hjortshøj,
           Denmark
    • Authors: Fallov M; Jørgensen A.
      Pages: 500 - 517
      Abstract: This article is about how to understand community action and development of the commons can play a key role in societal integrative processes in increasingly segregated Scandinavian societies. More specifically it relates to the residents’ integration of sixteen young adults with intellectual disabilities in Hjortshøj, what we might call a Danish intentional community. What might be learned from the example of Hjortshøj is, that it is not the segregation of residents in an ecological village, which alone accounts for the success of the experiment, nor is it solely due to the altruistic orientations of the existing residents. Rather, the integration process is dependent on inter-related affective practices of belonging, relating to the dimensions of local attachment, a common good, and normalization. Thus, integration is dependent on complex forms of relationality and how these affective practices form an affective subject characterized by emergence, flexibility, and diversity. By applying a conceptualization of Hjortshøj as a learning machine, the article provides insights to the complex assemblage of materiality, spatiality, and relationality in the local community of Hjortshøj, underlining how communities become machines for learning acts of citizenship.

  • The power of human agency: successful community development strategies in
           Norway’s rural northern margins
    • Authors: Lønning D.
      Pages: 518 - 536
      Abstract: This article analyses the two fundamental contemporary challenges, and tries to outline a possible development strategy targeting these challenges. First, how do we build community in an age of individualism' Second, how can a small remote community counter the massive structural forces of centralization and urbanization' The first of these challenges is faced by all community developers today, whilst rural developers, in order to succeed, need to address them both. Drawing on experiences from an innovative rural development project in Finnøya, Northern Norway, a project that resulted in growth in a very peripheral village, the author argues that a focus shift is necessary, from the natural and material resource base to the human one. Ultimately, positive place and community development is about engaged, active and interested human beings. How can the creativity and deep engagement of the individual become an asset for the whole community, asks the author, and outlines a network-based community development model, aimed at maximizing the individual freedom to create and at the same time producing new community goods and values.

  • Cultural sensitivity and barriers: Sami people with disabilities facing
           the welfare system
    • Authors: Melbøe L.
      Pages: 537 - 555
      Abstract: The aim of this article is to increase the understanding of the participation barriers Sami people with disabilities experience in encounters with the Norwegian welfare system. According to the Sami Act of 1987, § 3–5, the Sami in Norway have a legal right to receive equitable health and social services adapted to the Sami language and culture. The focus of this article is the experiences of disabled Sami citizens in encounters with welfare services. Cultural differences and a historically recent and draconian assimilation process seem to influence Sami people’s experiences. According to our informants, mainstream society’s limited cultural competence has a negative impact on these encounters. The welfare system offers standardized services adapted to the majority in society, involving the homogenization of an impairment, where disabled people are treated the same regardless of their cultural background. This does not lead to equitable services because services are not adapted to Sami thinking, values, attitudes, or life philosophy of life. Due to the lack of cultural sensitivity, Sami people with disabilities risk experiencing double discrimination in Norwegian welfare services, experiencing barriers to participation related to both their disability and their ethnicity. This makes an intersectionality perspective relevant, treating oppression and subordination as due to the combined effects of being Sami and having an impairment. Our study indicates that the lack of knowledge about Sami culture, language, and identity among Norwegian service providers leads to an oppressive practice and results in participation barriers to Sami people with disabilities.

  • Communitas and Friluftsliv: equine-facilitated activities for drug users
    • Authors: Sudmann T.
      Pages: 556 - 573
      Abstract: A green care farm creates a temporal ‘thrown-togetherness’. Farm-based welfare services provide contact with animals and nature, supportive environments, social acceptance, fellowship with other participants, and meaningful activities. Most green care farms in Norway have horses, and equine-assisted activities are known to add value to green care for people with addiction and/or mental health problems. Farms facilitate connectedness between place and people, create ‘place-events’, and resemble friluftsliv activities. Friluftsliv creates a different temporality and rhythm, where nature is cared for and befriended. This article presents and discusses two different approaches to equine-assisted activity for drug-users from an inpatient treatment programme, and for guests from a drop-in centre, respectively. Participation was non-conditional, and following the world view underpinning community work, the participants’ evaluations of benefits are the most significant outcome measure. The equine-assisted communities are both ephemeral and long-lasting, and have given many participants the motivation to stay in therapy and reduce their drug use, or they have gained access to new social arenas, volunteering, or to sheltered employment. Community work at farms offers possibility for communitas, i.e. a groups pleasure in sharing common experiences with one’s fellows, learning-in-context, friluftsliv and serendipitous benefits – the last adding an important contribution to participants’ health and well-being.

  • Civil society and the welfare state in Norway – historical relations
           and future roles
    • Authors: Loga J.
      Pages: 574 - 591
      Abstract: Recent years have seen an increasing interest in how civil society can contribute to the renewal of welfare states. Civil society and grassroots' initiatives and organizations played a central role in the original establishment of welfare states, but gradually the roles of civil society in welfare decreased. In Norway, there is still a high level of civic participation, but engagement is strong in the fields of culture and leisure, especially in children’s leisure activities in communities. In current public debates in Norway, as in many other European countries, the potential roles of civil society in the welfare state have been high on the agenda. Starting from studies of Norwegian white papers and official reports, in which civil society is increasingly seen as an untapped resource for ideal welfare production, coproduction between sectors, social innovation and entrepreneurship, voluntary sector and advocacy, the article will discuss how key values and practices in community work can add to or challenge this endeavour. The example of Norway is used with some comparative references to other countries. The article highlights not only the economic preconditions for future development for welfare, but also structural preconditions for a renewal of community work and possible new collaborative relations between civil society and the welfare state.
