We are pleased to be able to support through this event the contemporary and important branch of the art of graffiti! In June 2014 in Sarajevo, youth from over 20 countries gathered to discuss the moral of the last century. In their final conclusion they presented the most important three topics of our age, as they percieve them: overcoming nationalism, mutual networking of the youth and the active participation of citizens in the democratic process. The graffiti artists have, therefore, been invited to present the three topics artistically, Jens Wagner, the cultural attachĂ© of the Embassy of Germany in Sarajevo, pointed out.

Six street artists – graffiti artists from BiH and Germany participated in the graffiti event and they painted the Educational–Leisure Centre for Youth with their proactive graffitis and drawings.  

The topics that the youth emphasized as important for them through our conferences, shall be painted on the walls by the graffiti artists from BiH and Germany. The Educational-Leisure Centre for Youth SPAJALICA is a centre that annually welcomes over 1600 young visitors from all over the world, so that the artistic message will be transferred through the graffiti paint to the visitors of the centre as well, Nejra Neimarlija Roi?, the project coordinator from the Institute for Youth Development KULT, stated.
