Jan Åman

Jan Åman is an entrepreneur, curator, writer and activist specialized in the intersection between cities, buildings, food, art and social phenomena. Since January 2018 he is the creative director – responsible for strategy and innovation – of the development of Duved, a small village in the North of Sweden, where the country-side is turned into the engine of social innovation (instead of the big city). He gathered the team for Norrlandsmodellen (2022), where the experience from Duved was applied for a city, Umeå, within the NEB-inspired call Visions in the North.
