WELCOME TO CURIOSUM (former Sliperiet)

In April 2019, Sliperiet changed it´s name to Curiosum and merged with the science center Umevatoriet. This autumn we will take the next step. and together with our tenants move into the renewed premises of Sliperiet at Arts Campus at Umeå University.

In 2020 Curiosum will open. A new science center, to inspire young and old with science and technology. We believe curiosity can change the world.

Random Bastards celebrates their 100+ record release!


Random Bastards och Storspoven har i april släppt vinyalalbumet "Törley Törpers", vilket är deras 103:e musiksläpp i ordningen.

- Grafiken på albumet är inspirerad av "Törley", skatearnas favoritbudgetbubbel och temat är "koka soppa på en spik". Tanken är inte känna sig begränsad trots begränsade resurser, säger Erik Hörstedt, som tillsammans med Jon Brännström ligger bakom plattan.

Random Bastards (RB) is a creative crew and a Trademark started in 2002. In addition to music, RB designs, produces and sells skateboard and snowboard movies, clothing, accessories and boards, as well as clubs, festivals, movies and art. Storspoven is one of the companies under the umbrella of RB. It is owned by Erik Hörstedt and Samuel Isaksson, who are responsible for the crews' music- and clothing production and online sales. Storspoven has been a part om the company incubator Uminova eXpression for two years. Since 2017 the company stands on its own legs, and has decided to stay at the open Office space at Sliperiet.

 - We truly enjoy working at Sliperiet. It is a creative and open environment that really suits us. To constantly have other co-creators close at hand opens up for spontaneous ideas, and we look forward to all of our future projects during 2017 and 2018, says Erik Hörstedt.
