With more than 16 live performances and 200 artists, a series of public cultural activities including dance, theater, cinema, music and comics will mark the resumption of the creative activities of the city, much needed today to regain a sense of normalcy, a sense of life and hope.

In promoting intercultural dialogue, the students boldly stepped out in public spaces through various promotional activities based on socially engaged artistic do-it-yourself initiatives. ©High school students from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Republic of Serbia promote interculturalism through presentation of local cultural and historical heritage Although the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic restricted the majority of the activities to be in-person, it did not prevent the high school students from participating in the activities online. However, in February, one of the seminars took place in-person in the city of Vranje, Serbia. University and high school students in this seminar were motivated and particularly worked with a group of artists in creating an artistic street performance. The idea of exploring and discussing intercultural heritage through artistic street performance is an ingenious way of promoting intercultural dialogue and involving the larger community.
