Call for Participants in our Creative Contest

Novi Sad at the Cultural Crossroads

 

Serbian version of the text bellow.

Have you ever thought about cultural diversity in Novi Sad or was it something already implied for you? We think that interconnection of different cultures in this city is a great opportunity for everyone to creatively express themselves! That is why ESN Novi Sad is inviting all young people, high school and university students, foreign and ecchange students, young workers and professionals to take part in our creative contest and bring freshness to the art life of Novi Sad. 

 

Novi Sad is one of the Serbian most diverse cities, having a rich history and many different national minorities living here. Due to its position, it has always been a crossroads of civilizations and therefore a hub for diversity. Today there are more than 20 recognised national minorities who all peacefully live together. It is a thriving city with an enormous amount of young people attracted to it. Also, given the fact that it is the European Capital of Culture during 2022, this year even more emphasis is on cultures and mutual impacts.

 

Are you someone who likes to express in a creative way? Have you missed an opportunity to share your creativity with others? If yes, we are happy to create one for you! In accordance with the above, ESN Novi Sad has decided to organize a Creative Contest for anyone who likes making video material, photographs and literal texts. The topic is Novi Sad at the Cultural Crossroads. We would like to ask you what this city is for you when it comes to different cultural experiences and diversity, as well as different impacts. 

 

After the contest ends, we will present the short video material, photographs and literal works on our event, the interactive exhibition where you will have an opportunity to share your work with the audience and where our judges and the audience will decide who will win the prizes. The judges will be young people who are involved in film-making, production, photography and literature.

Da li ste ikada razmišljali o kulturnoj raznolikosti u Novom Sadu ili ste to shvatali zdravo za gotovo? Međusobna povezanost različitih kultura u ovom gradu odlična je prilika da se svi kreativno izraze! Zato ESN Novi Sad poziva sve mlade ljude, srednjoškolce i studente, strane studente, mlade radnike i profesionalce da učestvuju u našem kreativnom konkursu i osveže u umetnički život Novog Sada.

 

Novi Sad je po kulturnoj raznolikosti među vodećim gradovima u Srbiji, sa bogatom istorijom i mnoštvom različitih nacionalnih manjina. Zbog svog položaja, oduvek je bio raskrsnica civilizacija i samim tim centar različitosti. Danas postoji više od 20 priznatih nacionalnih manjina koje žive u njemu. To je grad koji privlači ogroman broj mladih ljudi. Takođe, s obzirom na činjenicu da je Novi Sad Evropska prestonica kulture tokom 2022. godine, ove godine stavljen je još veći naglasak na različitim kulturama i njihovim međusobnim uticajima.

 

Da li si ti neko ko voli da se izražava na kreativan način? Da li si do sada imala/o priliku da svoju kreativnost podeliš sa drugima? Mi želimo da ti pružimo jednu!
