About this grant

The goal of the organization is to raise awareness about the past and develop the values of human rights and rule of law in Serbia and Montenegro. This grant will enable Vojvodanka – Regional Women’s Initiative to organize annual human rights festivals in 2006 and 2007 that will include documentary films, photography and poster exhibits, creative workshops and public discussions. The festivals will travel to more than 20 towns and villages in Serbia and Montenegro and the Western Balkans region and provide an interactive space for individuals to learn about and engage with a range of issues linked to the region’s past.Vojvodanka was established in Serbia in 2000 as a regional center for the collection and dissemination of information on the protection and promotion of human rights and freedoms, with a special emphasis on women’s rights.
