Here is some interesting info regarding the ongoing development in Sydhavnen Hall of Fame in Copenhagen.
All the walls are still up! Big machinery is working in the area, but they are not touching the walls! At least for now!
First, Simon Strange (S), raised this proposal at Kultur&Fritidsudvalget which will be voted on November 21st 2013.
Simon also supported alot of positives initiatives in the past 4 years, check out his website here, among the 100 cases there is 10 relating straight to the support of graffiti and art in public spaces.
Second, here is an article in Politiken about how more research is needed before anything can be build at Sydhavnen, and it will take at least a year to get this research done.
Today, November 11th 2013, marked the day where heavy machinery started working on demolishing the Sydhavnen Hall Of Fame in Copenhagen. The spot have been a tolerated, not legal, hall of fame since the year 2000 and after 50.000+ masterpieces its time to redevelop the area like the rest of the Copenhagen harbor and turn it into expensive new apartments made of glass and steel.
Deadline 16th November, judged by Tizer, word is: Thoth.
