The idea of the Kosjeric Art Camp originated from The Club of Friendship based at The Centre for Anti-War Action in Belgrade. The camp was deliberately set outside the city of Belgrade in order to make a smaller local community benefit from international inputs, but also to give a chance to international participants to explore the capacities of a Serbian inner city and its surrounding natural beauties. This will be the 14th year of the art workcamp in Kosjeric. http://artcamp.ktowngroup.org.rs
The main concept of the Art Camp is to enable international young people to meet across the borders and share their artistic interests and skills, while rising of the life quality level in this local community especially through the interaction with the local young people. The workshop will consist of two groups, organized around the idea of "street galleries". First group’s task will be painting murals and introducing innovations to the technical procedure of the wall painting itself. The basic medium shall be acrylic façade paint; moreover, interventions and experimenting with the third dimension are also sought after. The overall goal of the second group is introducing new forms of expression and graffiti art. An art that’s been marginalized throughout decades and classified as subculture gets its own legitimate place and recognition, through a phenomenon of a "street gallery". Possible synthesis and collaboration between these two groups is possible depending on ideas and agreement among members. The participants will, according to their own affinities, decide between 2 groups, where they will express their creativity to the full extent. The first days will pass in getting acquainted with basics of mural painting and graffiti, as well as in exchanging ideas among participants themselves. Apart from the joint masterpiece, there is also a possibility of creating stencils, tags.
Accommodation is provided at private houses of local families with the meals in some of the local restaurants.
