Jedna osoba na svakih trinaest pati od anksioznosti. Tristapedeset miliona ljudi pate od depresije. Britanska ilustratorka i karikaturistkinja Gemma Correll kombinuje umetnost i humor kroz formu stripa za sve njih. Tražeći inspiraciju u sopstvenom iskustvu, ova umetnica stvara ilustracije sa kojima svako ko je ikada osetio anksioznost ili depresiju može da se poistoveti, a koje mogu da pokrenu razgovor na teme raznih situacija koje se tiču mentalnog zdravlja. Ona se takođe nada da će svojom umetnošću doprineti tome da se drugi osećaju manje usamljeno u svojim borbama pokazujući im da, iako možda tako ne deluje, puno ljudi zna kako izgleda boriti se sa mentalnim bolestima i da se, za nju, humor pokazao kao najbolji lek. U suštini, Gemmin rad pokazuje da se naši najmračniji trenuci mogu transformisati u nešto zanimljivo i korisno kao što su njene ilustracije.

Mladost u šezdesetoj

„Mladost u šezdesetoj“ je projekat koji je prošle godine realizovao NFC „Filmart“ iz Požege. Kroz različite oblike participativnih praksi, kao i kroz savremenu umetničku i video produkciju ovaj projekat imao je za cilj da dopre do one ciljne grupe požeške lokalne zajednice koja je jedan period svog života bila profesionalno vezana za nekadašnju Fabriku „Mladost“ ili je danas korisnik prostora nekadašnje fabrike. Prošle godine se navršilo šezdeset godina od osnivanja fabrike „Mladost – trikotaža i konfekcija”. Rešenjem NOO Požega, „Mladost“ je osnovana 12. novembra 1958. godine, a sve do početka devedesetih godina 20. veka je upošljavala 1200 radnika, uglavnom radnica – žena.

Projekat „Mladost u šezdesetoj“ se inkluzivnim oblicima aktivnosti na polju kulture i umetnosti bavio bivšim i sadašnji „stanovnicima“ Mladosti. Nekadašnja „šivara“ Mladosti, najveće proizvodna hala (8500m2) danas je kineski tržni centar „Tigar“. Kroz svoje aktivnosti NFC «Filmart» su nastojali da sačuvaju „istoriju Mladosti“, da zabeleže priče nekadašnjih „stanovnica Mladosti“ o tome kako je nekada bilo, ali i da upoznaju nove „stanare“ Mladosti. To su radili kroz razgovore, druženja, kreativne radionice, fotografisanje i snimanje video materijala.

U projektu su učestvovale: Zlata Aleksić, Danica Babić, Gordana Bajić, Jela Cvijović, Milada Erić, Ema Ilinčić, Milunka Ivanović, Ružica Korać, Zoran Luković, Saja Marković, Vera Matijević, Jelica Nikolić, Božana Petrović, Zdravka Savić i Olga Teofilović.

Autorsku ekipu projekta čine: Milica Đorđević, Sreten Vuković, Uroš Pavlović i Slađana Petrović Varagić, a realizovan je u okviru našeg programa “Hrabri iskoraci u novim kulturnim praksama”, uz podršku Balkanskog fonda za demokratiju.

The Heroines of Peace – Stories Beyond Negotiating Table

Since October 2018, the Foundation “Jelena Santic”, along with The Center for Research and Gender Policy from Priština, will start a project The Heroines of Peace – Stories Beyond Negotiating Table.

At the time of strengthening nationalist tensions, we want to tell a different story and discover the role of female activists  – from open to latent conflicts that nowadays prevent the coexistence of citizens without tension and fear. The Heroines of Peace – Stories Beyond Negotiating Table will contribute to understanding the relationship between Serbia and Kosovo, the common history and their influence in the process of building reconciliation and European integration. Various creative contents will serve as instruments for understanding our similarities and diversity, in order to build a culture of memory that undoubtedly opposes the rise of right-wing populism in the Western Balkans.

The Heroines of Peace – Stories Beyond Negotiating Table is conducted with the support of the Balkan Trust for Democracy.

Duration: October 2018 – October 2019

Your Place in Serbia

With the intention of turning towards activism with citizens and activism created by the citizens – Foundation “Jelena Šantić”, in partnership with the National Coalition for Decentralization, CRTA, ORCA and Media and Reform Center Niš, will support local initiatives and ideas which will change the community for the better.

We want to achieve strong links between citizens and civil society organizations through synergy, which, we believe, will lead to the successful realization of innovative and concrete ideas.

In the next four years, we want to support recognizable initiatives of citizens from all over Serbia, especially those who motivate others to join, led by local activists and implemented through knowledge, energy and engagement of the community. Therefore, we do not want to impose themes, we want to give support to local topics that citizens themselves think are important.

Therefore, we turn to this individual – the citizen, and we support authentic actions, helping to develop awareness, trust and a sense of well-being in local communities. Our goal is not to improve the image of civil society in the public, but to build respect for activism, make it desirable by highlighting positive examples and thereby motivate others to be active in order to make their environment a better place to live in Serbia.

By developing a system that quickly recognizes and supports good ideas throughout Serbia, we want to connect their initiators and existing organizations / associations with key actors in a particular region. That’s why we are here to connect with related CSOs, media, interest groups. Initiatives that show commitment, perseverance and expertise can count on us. Our intention is to create a sustainable support model for those who put their activism into new frameworks for organizing civil society, developing a business model or cross-sectoral partnership.

Although local communities have enough resources to become better, they need to recognize them and put them into operation for the benefit of the entire environment. We want to create an active environment that will be able to recognize and use the opportunities for progress and development.

The project “Your Place in Serbia” is being implemented with the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

Duration: June 2018 – June 2022.
