People's House

Local nameFolkets Hus
LocationPustervik, Göteborg, Sweden

People's Houses were originally leisure and cultural centres built with the intention of making art and cultural appreciation available to the working classes. The first establishment of this type appeared in Tomsk, Russian Empire in 1882. Soon people's Houses became popular in England, Scotland, Turkey and other European states.

The term "people's house" was used in continental Europe for working-class community centres, and these were often associated with labor unions and parties.
