This bachelor thesis is a case study of a culture project in Scania, Norra Grängesberg gatufesten in Malmö, planned by the municipality. The project aims to create a place where a diversity of culture actors can take part and is promoted as a grassroot festival.

The aim of the thesis is to analyze planning bottom-up and top-down, and if these ways can be combined without limitations. In this case grassroots are seen as bottom-up actors and municipality planning as top-down.

The methodology contains of interviews with five actors in the project Norra Grängesberg gatufesten; project leader, coordinator, the public private partnership BID-Sofielund, one property owner as well as the social center Kontrapunkt, the latter who officially has criticized the project. The analysis presents four perspective concerning the role of grassroots in municipality planning: the view on the future of the area, creativity and capital, democracy, participation and agency and depolitisation of the narrative. The conclusion the author is argumenting that the role of grassroots in the Norra Grängesberg gatufest is motivated by economic growth, where white and creative class is desired and where the grassroot organisations of the city are limited in the collaboration with municipality and public private partnerships.
