Tips fra Tingbjerg

Tips fra Tingbjerg was made as part of the Visit Tingbjerg art festival in collaboration with Bonnie Fortune (US), as Det 4. Kontor (The 4th office) Tips fra Tingbjerg puts focus on the words of women in Tingbjerg, specifically, the advice and information of the Tingbjerg Bydelsmødre [neighborhood mothers]. Tingbjerg is a planned community in Copenhagen, Denmark. It has drawn negative media attention in the past several years.  As part of their job as a Bydelsmor, the women in this group listen and give advice to other women and families in several different languages. Fluent in Danish and languages from French to Farsi, the Bydelsmødrene work to help others navigate the Danish social support system. Because the Bydelsmødrene give friendly advice as part of their work, this project sought to highlight friendly advice giving through a series of postcards.
