Venue and event database: Everything that happens and everything that exists - in one place
The venue and event database has been created to collect everything that happens in one place. Through user accounts, various organizations gain access to the database, and can upload places, events and activities themselves. There are several benefits to collecting everything that happens in one place. Because the database is an open API, the data can be used in many different ways depending on how it is filtered. Today, the database is used as a basis for creating calendars - not only for Helsingborg's various activities, but also for other Scanian municipalities. The content of the calendar is filtered so that it becomes relevant, for example, Dunkers Kulturhus has a calendar that only shows events that are going on with them.
Half of Skåne's municipalities use the database, which collects over 500 events per month
The site and event databases are basically based on WordPress' built-in API. It is open source, which means that anyone can build their own database based on their own needs.
