Visoko was recently a hotspot of activism and youth socializing. The first youth activist festival “Kriv(a) sam” (eng. Guilty as Charged) was held from June 20 to June 24, 2018 and consisted of various activities designed to encourage youth activism.
The festival included street activities, concerts, social events and educational workshops, and the focus was on youth.
During the festival, youth learned about the importance of participating in decision-making processes, talked to municipal, cantonal, and federal council members and representatives about the position of youth in Visoko and Bosnia and Herzegovina. They also had a chance to express their ideas creatively in literary and art workshops.
Participating in creative workshops was an opportunity for youth to send a message to politicians through an exhibit of artwork in one of the busiest streets in town.
The youth activist festival “Kriv(a) sam” was organized by the NGO Young Volunteers from Visoko, with the financial support of the Institute for Youth Development KULT, and the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sports in the Zenica-Doboj Canton.
