Novo Naselje is the biggest municipality in Serbia with a population around 40.000 inhabitants. The artists were collaborating with experts in the fields of history, literature, law, sociology, film directing, and poetry…

Besides the experts, one important focus group was that of women/mothers from the neighborhood, as this was the topic explored by our artists.

Novo Naselje has always been considered as “family-friendly neighborhood”, so big part of our neighborhood are mothers and kids. This large group of participants includes kids from preschool to elementary school, as well as kids from the school for children with special needs.

The final events were presented within three days in a place surrounded by the birches and called “Dialogues in Movement”. We had an opening for kids from the local kindergarten
