It’s often said that the way to get a real grasp of a new culture is to take a look at its street culture. In a country’s streets is where you’ll most likely find its true popular culture, what interests its people, its local art, and its most genuine food. Very often, it’s from the streets where the hottest new movements come from and the first to witness a phenomenon in its original street stage are sometimes only a privileged few.

But one media company is working to change that “privileged few” concept and are drawing attention to street culture from all around the world in hopes to educate people of new countries, cultures, and arts through curated videos that anyone can view online. That company is STOCKTOWN and one of the masterminds behind STOCKTOWN.com is Swedish filmmaker Teddy Goitom.

Teddy along with other film friends and enthusiasts created STOCKTOWN, a curated video magazine for culture in motion and since its recent start has continued to grow in popularity, eliminating the boundaries and cultural walls between countries forming a worldwide community of viewers. Just recently, STOCKTOWN was proud to announce their launch of the newly renovated site and in honor of Swedish National Day today, we want to bring attention to this awesome video web site that was born on the shores of Sweden with a one-on-one interview with this Teddy Goitom himself.

Check out our interview with Teddy below and if you’re in New York today you can see STOCKTOWN in action at Show & Tell NYC, where they will screen their Stocktown X South Africa film followed by Show & Tell session of curated videos, a visit from legendary street photographer Jamel Shabazz, and various DJ performances.
