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 art workcamp in Kosjeric. http://artcamp.ktowngroup.org.rs
Theater workshop will allow volunteers to experience and learn the basics of acting and improve their current knowledge about it. Through interaction and demonstration of acting training (which is consisted of workouts for attention, concentration, improvisation, movement coordination, individual and teamwork), volunteers will have a chance to raise their awareness of stage appearance and creativity within themselves. Theatre is based on the search for the stage expression through acting training and creative abilities, e.g. the concept of the group. Theatre workshop is meant to integrate efforts of other workshops – sounding for music and movement as well as street art workshop for scenography. The emphasis is based on group work, space perception and the use of space as stage material, as well as on the use of body as an instrument of expression in collaboration with classical acting. The main goal of this workshop is to offer a vision of theater as a place of communication and space of open mind in which one can perceive oneself from a different and completely new perspective. Work on the concept is dived into four steps: 1. step: imitation, improvisations, imagination 2. step: communication, remembering 3. step: organizing the production and directing 4. step: public presentation of the work The aim of the project is interaction between workshop participants, local residents and space, as well as intergroup communication and communal production.
Accommodation is provided at private houses of local families with the meals in some of the local restaurants.

Thanks to its natural features and well organized authentic rural tourist households, Kosjeric is one the leading destinations of rural tourism in Serbia. Main agricultural activities of Kosjeric are cattle-breeding and fruit production, so the whole area is abundant in fruit orchards of extraordinary quality, around which livestock enjoy the freedom to roam in the pastures.
