The organisation that I’m a part of (board member) Streetball København, started a collaboration with Kulturhuset Indre By to upgrade one of Copenhagen’s most beloved playgrounds. With financial support from the Nordea Foundation, we were able to hang up new backboards and breakaway rims. Because of the collaboration, the opportunity arose for my project, Cities of Basketball, to have the opportunity to paint the playground with new lines and little extra.

My two childhood friends (Nikolaj and Matias) and I had just one day to complete the paint job. With challenges like 75% of the original lines being completely gone, extremely worn down asphalt and limited amount of paint (17.5 liters), I have to be frank and say, we did a pretty solid job, and had a blast in the process. Looking forward to do more projects like this in the city of Copenhagen.

You can find the playground here (Google Maps).
