Invitation: GGWCup

Udgivet d. 08. maj 2019

A new step towards the realization of a truly equal and inclusive space for women’s sport. This is the goal of the Herstory Arena, which will be unveiled at the Global Goals World Cup on May 14th in Copenhagen. For too long, the world of sports has reflected a limited image of the ideals, value and purpose of sport. The Herstory Arena seeks to tackle the physical manifestation of this problem by transforming the physical arena space into one which reflects women's voices and interpretations, to create a vision of a future where sport is truly owned by everyone. The Global Goals World Cup reached out to their alumni network and players to share stories of
the greatest triumphs, joys and motivations of their sports experiences. They partnered with Arkitekturministeriet for the work of creating a sportsarena for women & Jette Svane, creative
director & partner of Mooly, to transform players’ stories into illustrations, printed on sustainable fabrics, which will be hung and constructed to create the arena.

“Openness is important and performance should not be more important than fairness and safety and fun.”

“In a game or sport event, I constantly have to find opportunities. And I have to quickly forgive my mistakes! In other parts of life, that process can take days, weeks or even years. In sports, every moment is a new chance to try.”
