Whether dance, theatre, circus or poetry, painting, sculpture, music, - every form of arts has a potential to open new horizons and overcome cultural or social separation. For this reason, art is the main motor of this exchange between young artists from Switzerland and Serbia.
Through our skill-sharing workshops and open spaces, everyone is invited to unpack and share their artistic suitcase.
What is Art?
What is Nature?
What is the connection between them?
We want to exchange ideas about these questions in a playful way and explore new paths of artistic communication together.
You don’t need to be a professional artist to attend this event.
