CULTURE OF PEACE
Novi Sad, as the European Capital of Culture, invites you to critically rethink the causes and consequences of warfare and to set out in search of a culture of peace through theory and socially engaged art. Such thinking directs us to face the past, create a new attitude toward the culture of remembrance, and pay tribute to the victims of wars in the world, Europe, and the Western Balkans.
Through exhibitions, performances, plays, musicals, concerts, and film screenings, we nurture a culture of remembrance, explore different concepts of peace, togetherness, and artistic rebellion, and promote anti-fascist ideas. All the while we converse!
Within the Fortress of Peace, nearly 150 events with artists from 30 countries await us.
Some of the programmes such as Requiem will honour the casualties of war, while EUtopia will take us to new models of co-existence in Europe. We will have an opportunity to learn about engaged art through Resistance, and Dove will present Novi Sad as an example of European peace.
