Helle Carlstedt and Lenita Valencia López petitioned the city for a street pole at Rålambshovsparken. Their campaign was successful and the city decided to build Stockholm’s first street pole. Fast forward to this weekend when the Vida Street Pole was inaugurated with champagne and a photoshoot. With us was also a happy group of instructors from Vida Pole bracing the temperamental autumn weather.
“We are so happy and proud that we made this happen! And we are thankful to Stockholms Stad who has supported us and our idea from the very beginning. About a year ago we sent in a citizen proposal after raising a petition online. We have gotten so much good feedback and sweet words from pole people all over the world about this, so it feels very good that it’s finally here! It’s a big day!”
