The first activity within the event entitled “Openly about urban and spatial issues”, organized by the NGO Urban Nova from Herceg Novi, includes a tour of 10 sites situated in the wider center of Herceg Novi, which, although now empty, abandoned or underused, are reminiscent of all that they used to be or could be. “The tour”, which begins at 6 p.m. in front of the former hotel Topola, will pass by the former Vinopromet, Dom omladine, the endowments of Nikola Musić and Leso Pavković, the former “Dubrava” motel, the endowments Đurović- Boskovic Laketić and Duković, Burovina Palace and Boka park.
On the same day, at 10 p.m., the screening of the award-winning documentary film “Mreža solidarnosti / Solidarity Network” by the Split artist Đildo Bavčević will be held in Tondo Art Club, followed by a discussion with the author.
In his documentary and video art works Bavčević deals with the issues that former Yugoslav counties inherited after the breakup of the country. In the film “Solidarity Network” he advocates documenting and exchange of ideas through alternative media, considering them to be the strategy to mobilize the public, and thus the instrument of resistance.
The event will finish with a concert of the Split electro-punk band (Na)Porno suicid. NGO “Urban Nova” from Herceg Novi is a partner in the project StroNGO, in the framework of which the event “Openly about urban and spatial issues” is being organized.
The lead partner in the project is NGO Expeditio, and the main goal of the project is to build the capacity and improving level of participation of CSOs so that they can become professional, effective and accountable independent actors in the Boka Kotorska area.
The project StroNGO is funded by the European Union through the IPA 2014 Civil Society Facility Montenegro.
