Vreva – First Street Festival of Activism in Belgrade23. August 2012 - 10:06 — Dejan Georgievski
Liceulice, street magazine and platform for activism and new ideas organizes the first street festival of activism “Vreva” (clutter, noise). The festival will be held on September 21-22, in Belgrade, and will integrate different forms of action, expression and engagement related to public spaces and community activism.
“The festival programme is designed to promote and stimulate activism, optimism and entrepreneurship, care about the community and environment, culture of tolerance and multiculturality, inclusion instead of discrimination, humanity, solidarity and philanthropy, as well as innovative ways to face some of the key challenges”, states the invitation published on Liceulice website.
The festival will offer a variety of programmes that will, as in all other street festivals, take place simultaneously, in the open space in the heart of the city.
“The clutter and the noise we announced will be experience by the visitors through exhibitions, public presentations, workshops, debates – “discussions in the park”, performances, flash mobs, street games, diverse film and concert programmes. The visitors will also be treated to a unique variety of street food named “hungry for change”, with food created in different cultures or specially designed for the festival”, Liceulice adds.
The Vreva Festival intends to grow, with the help of participants, visitors, people who were just passing by, neighbours and friends, into a wonderful, free and creative, unique, motley and unforgettable mix of diversities – components that make high-quality clutter and noise anyways.
„We will wait for you on the side of the street where people know change is needed and possible, but also know that so much depends on us and our actions!“ Liceulice says.
Festival activities will take place at the Vojvoda Vuk Park (Park Palas) and surrounding streets. (Source: Liceulice)
