OPENS DISTRIKT – YOUTH CAMP

23 Aug/2019 Published in News

“OPENS Distrikt” is a fifteen-day-long event in Novi Sad which we will organise in honour of street art and innovative action sports.
During these 15 days, OPENS will welcome graffiti artists from the region, but also FISE licensed show of innovative action sports as well as top athletes in BMX, skate, scooter and skate roller disciplines. One of the main activities of “OPENS Distrikt” is the international youth camp which will be organised from 5 to 16 September 2019 – “OPENS Distrikt – Youth Camp”.

The topic of the youth camp follows the topic of “OPENS Distrikt” so the participants of the camp will have the chance to learn how to create DJ mixes and paint graffiti. The workshops will be held by street artists of Novi Sad.

However, the camp will not consist of work only! The participants of the camp will have the chance to investigate the city, spend some free time at the city beach Štrand, prepare a party for young people from the local community in which the camp will be held and enjoy the FISE show.

Applications are open for young people from the cities of the partnering organizations of OPENS: Pančevo, Zaječar, Užice, Kragujevac and Niš. The applied participants will go through the selection process according to the motivation they state in the application form, and on 1 September, OPENS will let the participants know the results directly. Apart from the participants from Serbia, young people from former and future European Youth Capitals (EYC) will participate in the camp.
The maximum number of participants in the camp from one city is 2.
