The program coordinator of GAIA in Mitrovica, including the Social Space for Deconstruction, Mevlude Skuroshi, one of the founders of the Krik cultural shelter in Kamenica, Slobodan Miljković, the executive director of 7Arte, Lulzim Hoti, and the editor of the art program of the Private Cultural Center Akvarijus, Aleksandar Dundjerin, took part in the discussion. A translation of the discussion was available in Serbian, Albanian and English.
They discussed the challenges they face in their work, whether they need support, and if so, what kind, and whether institutional support would be useful. The interlocutors also spoke about topics such as the outflow of young people, multiethnicity, and cooperation.

The “Gathered: We believe in art” project was implemented by the Alternativna Website with the support of the United Nations Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK).
Within this project, a digital platform www.gatheredinart.com was opened, where artists living and creating in Kosovo were presented. The goal was to create a virtual space for artists, thus supporting and simultaneously promoting their work on the Internet and social networks.
A total of 5 virtual exhibitions were held within the project. In the coming days, we will publish the interviews with some of the artists presented on this platform.
The platform remains open for submissions. Read more about the application criteria HERE.
