Our Odyssey

Workshop
Workshop

Hello, our friends. You can see in text below what we did from june till mid October.

 

Festival: LOUD, LOUDER! - ArtFemine 8

The 8th ArtFemine festival, organized by the activists of the Center for Girls, gathered over 150 people, both fellow citizens and sisters-in-arms from the region and abroad, during the four days that it lasted. The visitors of the festival were able to attend and participate in a street action, workshops, panels, performances, and music events.

One of the most significant events at the festival was Nevena's performance.

Nevena M. performance “Women trafficking, violence/art/reality” initiated an important subject for our society. Nevena’s story started in Niš over 20 years ago. On July 3rd 2021 she was, for the first time, in her birth city, able to perform the play into which she poured all of her experience she gained while being a victim to human trafficking, recovering, returning to her normal life and uncovering art as the medium to spread the story of this horrible type of violence. After the performance, there followed an interview with Nevena, Eveline C. - the director of the performance, and Hristina P. from the NGO ASTRA. The interview was led by the lead coordinator for the Center for Girls – Tatjana N.

 

7th Feminist Art Colony

Center for Girls hosted and welcomed seven artists for this year's Feminist Art Colony, who spent their 7 days in Sicevo creating their artworks. Female artists took part in this colony from Rijeka (Hrvatska), Kruševac, Niš, Štrpce, Beograd, Kragujevac and Lapovo. Their words will best describe how they spent their time there and how they felt at the colony, so we leave you with some of their impressions.

 

What did participation in the Feminist Art Colony mean for you and what emotion did it bring out in you?

 

  • For me it meant something beautiful. The journey, personal growth, meeting with the new, exploration, abolishing of personal prejudices, getting out of my comfort zone, education, empowerment. I am inspired that something like this exists on this planet and it gives me hope that things can change for the better inside our own community. I am left with positive feelings. A feeling of being a part of something, of acceptance and self-worth. I made new friends and I will always remember this community full of peace, tolerance, joy, and creativity.

Six activists of the Center for Girls were part of the theater troupe that led part of the audience from the entrance of the Nis Fortress, across the bridge, through the park to the amphitheater, where, after that introductory part, the play Our Odyssey, Theater Wall, from Amsterdam was performed. This process was led by Karolina Spajic, director of ZID Tetar.

 

In solidarity for and with women of Afghanistan

Together with our fellow women from Leskovac, Dimitrovgrad, Vlasotince and Uzice, the Girls' Center participated in the global campaign Rise for / with Women of Afghanistan on September 25. Each organization held a street action in its city. We shared the message from the banner SOLIDARITY WITH AND FOR WOMEN OF AFGHANISTAN in the center of the city of Nis with more than a thousand fellow citizens. Three activists brought the issue closer to their fellow citizens by reading the confessions of girls and women from Afghanistan. Together with thousands of others around the world, we have supported the worldwide campaign organized by @ 1billionrising @vdayorg @eveensler Why? Because we believe that women in Afghanistan have the right to education, to travel, to freedom of movement, to work, to security, to the freedom to breathe and be. #RiseForAndWithWomenOfAfghanistan #StandWithWomenofAfghanistan # 1BillionRising #RiseInSolidarity #RiseResistUnite

Educational workshops on the prevention of human trafficking at the School of Textile and Design in Leskovac

Three educational workshops on the prevention of human trafficking, held in September at the School of Textiles and design, Leskovac. The workshop was led by: Danica S.

 

Some of the impressions of the girls from the workshops:

* Cooperation with girls is excellent. We realized that there are things in our city and its surroundings as we see every day, and we are not aware of the reality behind it.

* I liked the workshop it could be mentioned more often in schools and more stories about it

* The workshop was great, I learned a lot and it was great, I did a lot heard of human trafficking ♥

 

See you in 4 months. :)
