After five months of work with the participants of the program The Context Studies – The Diversity of the Diversity, lectures, workshops, production, cooperation with the mentors and the team of the project, groups of participants from Niš, coordinated by Yurom Center, in cooperation with the Internet TV Romaworld and NGO Indigo will present the results of their work and cooperation.

KUD „Alija Jašarević“ , coordinated by Dragan Osmanović will perform a folklore dance and theater play „One Way Ticket“ which tackles the issue of migrations and insuportable situation of Roma people.

Hip-hop workshops organized in Niš within the program The Context Studies – The Diversity of the Diversity will be presented by the two groups of participants who attended them in two centers. The group coordinated by Turkijan Redžepi, with conceptual and practical support of Kastro Brijani, hip-hop artist from Niš, in cooperation with Internet TV Romaworld worked on the process of music production and visibility models of hip-hop production, public and online. The group coordinated by Tamara Simonović and the team of NGO Indigo in Social Center has produced a song together which will be presented. During the workshops, the participants had an opportunity to work with the musicians of their choice (Predrag Radovančević – BG Fank; Muha Blackstazy, Vladimir Đorđević) and to hear lectures of the history of hip-hop movement (Greg de Cuir).

Public presentation of the results of the work realized within the program The Context Studies – The Diversity of the Diversity is open for all, and it will be an opportunity to think about the models of presenting those results as a part of the Plenum of the Context Studies in Belgrade in November, together with all the participants from the cities involved in the program: Belgrade, Subotica, Novi Pazar and Niš.
