The workshop was organized in cooperation with the non-governmental organization Anima in order to initiate the feminist mapping in Montenegro. As the practice of creation of “women’s maps” has begun in the neighbouring countries over the last few years, the idea of the workshop was to acquaint all interested persons with the methodology of feminist mapping and to present good examples so far.  The workshop was attended by 19 participants from Pljevlja, Cetinje, Podgorica, Sutomore, Kotor, Tivat and Herceg Novi.

Tristan-pobjeda1On 20 December 2012, the daily newspaper “Pobjeda” published an article about the installation of “Tristan” sculpture. “Tristan” invites people to think about the principles of sustainable development – using renewable energy sources (leaves in the form of wind turbines), environmental protection (recycling),  involving local people of all ages in creative activities that contribute to the community development (children painting “the tree”), etc.

vedran In the middle of December 2012, Expeditio invited the citizens of Kotor and surrounding municipalities, to lend them for several days their old lamps, chandeliers, lanterns, lampshades and flashlights. The idea was to use those lamps to light one small public space in the Old Town Kotor. We wanted to show that, through engaging citizens in a simple and creative action, a public space can be improved and made more interesting. This activity was realized in cooperation with the members of the artistic associatio ProstoRož from Ljubljana. Prostoroz explores, examines and opens new possibilities of public space use in accordance with the needs of its inhabitants in Slovenia and abroad (www.prostoroz.org).
