Participative Democracy in Comrat, a tool to support local authorities to deliver services

Participative democracy, local authorities and civil society working together, is the core of ALDA’s work. We are working together with local partners to assess the potential of these actions, to train and empower local citizens, elected leaders and civil servants, in order to find together good ways to solve problems. Our project “Empowering local authorities and civil society to deliver solutions with Participative Democracy” is ongoing, with the support of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation. In Comrat, the first step – assessing local governance – took place since the beginning of June with a broad inquiry addressing more than 120 local stakeholders. The results have already started appearing and they are showing the potential of joint cooperation between public institutions and citizens. For this, the 12 Principles of Good Governance and the European Label for Governance Excellence – EloGE, as defined by the Council of Europe, have been the substantial basis. From the 15th to the 19th of September, the Secretary General of ALDA, Antonella Valmorbida, the Eastern Partnership Coordinator, Alexandru Coica and the Delegate of the Local Democracy Agency Moldova in Cimislia, Nicolae Hristov, have visited Comrat, the capital city of the Gagauzia region. There, a series of contacts and seminars took place, hosted by the Municipality and its Mayor Serghei Anastasov. The city of Comrat is indeed working on participative democracy, providing a quite successful example and practice: thanks to the initiative of citizens (and with their first financial investments) the local authorities is matching resources (generally 30/40% citizens and 70/60% municipality) for the renovation of courtyards, walkways or other public infrastructures, such as roads and canalization. The process has proved itself to be rather successful and it is known as “Participation of citizens for the renovation of the yards”, and amost 30 projects have been realized following the same scheme. They created immediate welfare for citizens, with an impact on the short run, but with a constant involvement for maintenance, from the citizens’ side, with an impact on the long run.

The project “Empowering local authorities and civil society to deliver solutions with Participative Democracy” is implemented in Moldova in Comrat and in Cimislia and in Ukraine, in Dnipro and in Mariupol. The trainings will be implemented in the second phase of the year with the implementation of a joint problem solving in all cities piloted.

La démocratie participative, les autorités locales et la société civile travaillant ensemble, cela est au cœur du travail d’ALDA. Nous travaillons avec des partenaires locaux pour évaluer le potentiel de ces actions, pour former et responsabiliser les citoyens locaux, les dirigeants élus et les fonctionnaires, afin de trouver ensemble de bons moyens de résoudre les problèmes. Notre projet « Donner aux autorités locales et à la société civile les moyens d’apporter des solutions grâce à la démocratie participative » est en cours, avec le soutien de Konrad Adenauer Foundation. À Comrat, la première étape – l’évaluation de la gouvernance locale – s’est déroulée depuis le début du mois de juin avec une vaste enquête auprès de plus de 120 acteurs locaux. Les résultats ont déjà commencé à apparaître et ils montrent le potentiel d’une coopération conjointe entre les institutions publiques et les citoyens. Pour ce faire, les 12 Principes de bonne gouvernance et le Label européen pour l’excellence en matière de gouvernance – EloGE, tels que définis par le Conseil de l’Europe, en ont été la base essentielle.

Là, une série de contacts et de séminaires ont eu lieu, accueillis par la municipalité et son maire Serghei Anastasov. La ville de Comrat travaille en effet sur la démocratie participative, fournissant un exemple et une pratique assez réussie : grâce à l’initiative des citoyens (et à leurs premiers investissements financiers), les autorités locales mettent en adéquation les ressources (généralement 30/40% de citoyens et 70/60% de la municipalité) pour la rénovation des patios, passages ou autres infrastructures publiques comme les routes ou canalisent des voies. Le processus s’est avéré plutôt réussi et il est connu sous le nom de “Participation des citoyens pour la rénovation des chantiers”, et près de 30 projets ont été réalisés selon le même schéma. Ils ont créé un bien-être immédiat pour les citoyens, avec un impact à court terme, mais avec une implication constante pour l’entretien, du côté des citoyens, avec un impact à long terme.

Il processo si è rivelato piuttosto efficace ed è noto come “Partecipazione dei cittadini per il rinnovamento dei cortili” e circa 30 progetti sono stati realizzati seguendo lo stesso schema.

Демократии посредством участия в Комрате, инструмент для поддержки местных властей в предоставлении услуг

Демократия посредством участия, местные органы власти и гражданское общество работают вместе, является основой работы ALDA. Мы работаем вместе с местными партнерами, чтобы оценить потенциал этих действий, обучить и расширить возможности местных жителей, выборных лидеров и государственных служащих, чтобы вместе найти хорошие способы решения проблем. Наш проект „Расширение возможностей и прав местных органов власти и гражданского общества для предоставления решений с помощью демократии посредством участия” продолжается при поддержке Konrad Adenauer Foundation. В Комрате, первый шаг – оценка местного управления – был проведен с начала июня, и было проведено широкое расследование, охватывающее более 120 местных заинтересованных сторон. Результаты уже начали появляться, и они показывают потенциал совместного сотрудничества между государственными учреждениями и гражданами. Для этого существенной основой стали 12 Принципов надлежащего управления и Европейский знак качества управления – EloGE, как они определены Советом Европы. С 15 по 19 июля Генеральный секретарь АЛДА Антонелла Вальморбида, координатор Восточного партнерства Александру Койка и представитель Агентства местной демократии в Молдове в Чимишлии Николай Христов посетили Комрат, столицу Гагаузкой Автономии. Там состоялась серия контактов и семинаров, организованных ее мэром Сергеем Анастасовым. Город Комрат действительно работает над демократией участия, предоставляя довольно успешный пример и практику: благодаря инициативе граждан (и с их первыми финансовыми инвестициями) местные органы власти находят ресурсы (обычно 30/40% граждан и 70/60% муниципалитет) для ремонта дворов, пешеходных дорожек или других общественных инфраструктур, таких как дороги и канализация. Процесс оказался довольно успешным и известен как «Участие граждан в ремонте дворов», и почти 30 проектов были реализованы по той же схеме. Они создали условия для быстрого роста благосостояния граждан, оказав таким образом влияние на краткосрочную перспективу, но с постоянным привлечением к обслуживанию со стороны граждан, оказав также влияние на долгосрочную перспективу.

الديمقراطية التشاركية في كمرات (Comrat), أداة لدعم جهود السلطات المحلية ومساعدتها على توفير الخدمات

عندما تتضافر مقومات الديمقراطية التشاركية وجهود السلطات المحلية ومنظمات المجتمع المدني, فهي تتحول إلى العملي الاساسي الذي تناشده ألدا. نحن نتعاون مع شركائنا المحليين لتقييم الامكانيات التي توفرها هذه الأنشطة, وتدريب المواطنين وتمكينهم على المستوى المحلي, إضافة إلى القادة المنتخبين والموظفين العموميين, وذلك بهدف التعاون فيما بيننا وإيجاد أفضل الطرق لحل المشاكل القائمة. كما أن مشروعنا “تمكين السلطات المحلية ومنظمات المجتمع المدني لتقديم الحلول بفضل الديمقراطية التداولية” مازال متواصلا بدعم من مؤسسة كونراد آدنآور.في إطار كمرات(Comrat), تم قطع الخطوة الأولى – تقييم نتائج الحوكمة المحلية – منذ بداية شهر جوان (حزيران) بواسطة دراسة موسعة شملت أكثر من 120 صاحب مصلحة على المستوى المحلي. بدأت النتائج الأولى تظهر لتوضح جدوى العمل المشترك بين المؤسسات العمومية والمواطنين ونتائجه الإيجابية. وفي سياق متصل, تم اللجوء إلى القاعدة الأساسية كمرجع لاعتماد 12 مبدإ للحوكمة الرشيدة والعلامة الأوروبية لحوكمة الامتياز – EloGE , كما تم تحديد ذلك من قبل مجلس أوروبا. وخلال الفترة 15-19 سبتمبر (أيلول), تولى كل من أنتونلا فلموربيدا, الأمينة العامة لألدا, ومنسق الشراكة الشرقية, ألكسندرو كويكا, ومبعوث وكالة الديمقراطية المحلية لملدوفا بشمشليا, نيكولا هستوري, زيارة مدينة كمرات, عاصمة منطقة قاقوزيا, حيث قاموا بالعديد من الاتصالات وحضروا الندوات التي تم تنظيمها هناك, من قبل المسؤولين في البلدية وعمدتها سارغاي آنستسوف. كما أن مدينة كمرات تعمل بكل حزم وجدية على منظومة الديمقراطية التشاركية, مقدمة بذلك مثالا حيا وفاعلا عن النجاح المسجل والممارسات الجيدة المتبعة في هذا المجال: بفضل مبادرة المواطنين ( ومساهمتهم المالية الأولية في الاستثمارات), تتولى السلطات المحلية تقسيم الموارد (حيث يساهم المواطن, عموما بنسبة %30/40 والبلدية بنسبة %60/70) في ترميم الفضاءات والممرات العمومية ومنشآت البنية التحتية العمومية الأخرى, مثل الطرقات والمجاري. كما أثبت هذا المسار جدواه وعكس “مساهمة المواطنين في مشاريع التعمير”, حيث تم انجاز ما يقارب 30 مشروع على أساس نفس النمط الهندسي. ارتقت هذه المشاريع مباشرة إلى مستوى تطلعات المواطنين بخصوص ظروف عيش أفضل, وذلك بالتأثير الذي خلفته على الأمد القصير, حتى وإن بقي ذلك في حاجة متواصلة للصيانة من قبل المواطنين على الامد الطويل.

يتم تنفيذ المشروع المعروف باسم “تمكين السلطات المحلية ومنظمات المجتمع المدني لكي تتوصل إلى تقديم الحلول بفضل منظومة الديمقراطية التشاركية” في ملدوفا, وبالتحديد في كل من مدينتي كمرات وشمشليا, وأوكرانيا في دنيبرو وماريوبول. كما سيشهد السداسي الثاني من السنة تنظيم  الدورات التدريبية تنفيذ المشاريع الداعية إلى إيجاد حل للمشاكل القائمة في المدن النموذجية.

يتم تنفيذ المشروع المعروف باسم “تمكين السلطات المحلية ومنظمات المجتمع المدني لكي تتوصل إلى تقديم الحلول بفضل منظومة الديمقراطية التشاركية” في ملدوفا, وبالتحديد في كل من مدينتي كمرات وشمشليا, وأوكرانيا في دنيبرو وماريوبول. كما سيشهد السداسي الثاني من السنة تنظيم  الدورات التدريبية تنفيذ المشاريع الداعية إلى إيجاد حل للمشاكل القائمة في المدن النموذجية.


A sparkling participatory process is taking place in Vicenza

We are used to working with citizens and support grassroots movements all over (and beyond!) Europe, and the moment arrived to be active citizens in our own neighbourhood, in Vicenza!
There, we, ALDA together with local associations like PAMPAS and many other friends, are carrying out a participatory process to enhance the ownership and the quality of the very same neighbourhood from where we work every day to support Local Democracy in more than 40 different countries.

And here we go back to the spark, as this is how we have decided to call our working-group – Scintilla, in Italian – from the very first moment. Our Scintilla is made up of 20 (super)engaged citizens living in the area locally called “Quadrilatero”, with whom we are developing a first consultation dialogue to understand where we want to drive the project to: building consultations, open meetings, participative workshops; all the tools of participatory democracy and local government are being deployed. And in the meantime, many practical steps have already been taken to kickstart the transformation we envisage for the quarter.

At the moment there are several sub-groups starting specific actions aiming at achieving different results, in the framework of the broader project. Cultural events, workshops and neighbourhood parties: from the first months of the process, we will not leave much space to boredom!
Finally, we have created a mailing list and a Facebook page  which will help the group to convey the main news about the project, in the hope to involve more people every day and to bring our outreach even further.
Needless to say, much more has to come, and more news are coming up!

CROSS-OVER project at its finest: the post-EU election phase

The month of May looks already far, and with it the European Parliament Elections. After the hard work carried out by partners and volunteers of the CROSS OVER project during the pre-elections period, now local activities give way to new and tangible questions on the future of the Union.

In light of this, the sixth and last international project’s event, hosted by the city of Gdańsk between 8th and 9th July, opened up with a session of group discussions regarding the turnout of the elections in each country involved, being Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary, Slovakia, Poland, Italy, Malta, Sweden and Denmark. If on the one hand the participation rate increased in almost all the nations, this cannot be said for Italy and Malta. Partners then worked together to formulate questions about the post-elections path and the consequences of the results on the main European issues going forward: raising awareness on the impact of European policies at the national level, bridging the gap between MEPs and their constituents, the role and consequences of disinformation, fake news and hate speech…

The activities continued with a debate between Ms Magdalena Adamowicz, newly elected member of the European Parliament, and Ms Aleksandra Dulkiewicz, mayor of the city of Gdańsk, moderated by Mr Maximilian Kieturakis, from Wszystko dla Gdańska. Next, the accent was put to examples of positive promotion of European values: the Vote4Friendship campaign organized by Alliance 4 Europe represented by Ms Maia Mazurkiewicz and the Weź Zagłosuj (Go Vote) campaign organized by the Metropolitan Area Gdańsk Gdynia Sopot represented by Mr Michał Glaser. Finally, project partners had the opportunity to reflect on the importance of democratic processes and citizenship engagement both at national and European levels during a visit to the European Solidarity Centre which commemorates the Solidarność movement and the anti-communist democratic opposition in Poland and throughout the world.

The CROSS OVER project is co-funded by the Europe for Citizens programme. The project aims at encouraging young people to reflect on political accountability through increased participation in the elections for the European Parliament. The basic idea of the project is to devise and stimulate actions that will effectively solve the lack of interest of youth in voting at the European level.

Learning from the past to ACHIEVE a better Europe

We all know that a deep knowledge and comprehension of history, both from a local and a global point of view, is fundamental to understand the present world and to walk towards a better tomorrow. What is equally important is the awareness that, apart from national narrative, very often different countries share much history in common, in terms of social, political and cultural processes.

The effort to draw the attention on such joint aspects represents not only the basis on which the European Union was founded, but also the gateway to rediscover and unveil its essence: a bridge between nations and cultures which share a set of common values and move together for the welfare of every single member-country, for the environment and thus for the whole society, encompassing its own borders. Here come into play a brand-new project, ACHIEVE – Awareness of Common History for Identifying and Extending the Values of Europe.

The project’s consortium, led by the “Cultural Institute on Social Sciences Nicolò Rezzara ” of Vicenza and Breganze Municipality, and including several associations and Municipalities from Central and South-Eastern Europe, will join forces and work together for the next two years in order develop a European identity starting from a reflection on common history, art and religions as a tool to fight the rise of Euroscepticism. ACHIEVE project officially kicked-off on June 25th and 26th in the Municipality of Erdut, a small town on the Danube. During those days partners got to know each other and presented the different organizations and Municipalities to the local population.

A special focus was dedicated to Euroscepticism in the countries involved, also in light of the recent elections. What’s next? Each partner will start implementing local actions, tailored to each community.. waiting for the next meeting in Prague at the House of National Minorities!

Thousand facets of tourism in Novo Mesto - with CUT project

The discovery of local beauties and the promotion of cultural heritage continues as the CUT project – Culture Twinning: Twinning Tourism Promoting Cultural Heritage – keeps going on. The last stop of the CUT journey was in Slovenia, in the lovely city of Novo Mesto, situated in the southeastern part of the country, not far from the Croatian border. There, at the end of June, project partners gathered with a precise objective: discover all the beauties and the opportunities that the city and the region around reserve for tourists. Our guides in this field-mission were both the representative of the Municipality of Novo Mesto, the Development Center Novo Mesto (Razvojni Center Novo Mesto) and the recently renovated Tourist Information Center. They accompanied us through the old town, revealing a number of ancient monuments, among which the Franciscan monastery, its precious library and the Church of S. Nikolai. We then explored the shores of the Krka river where we enjoyed a canoa ride. During the project meeting two recurrences took place: the Anniversary of the partnership between the Municipalities of Novo Mesto and Vilafranca del Penedès and the Feast of Situlae – the festival of Iron age life and cuisine.
On the other hand, the overall event was primarily meant to be a time for reflection and exchange of good practices on innovative methods to feed what we may define sustainable and “smart” tourism. This indicates a tourism not for its own sake, but aimed at discovering the real treasure each place preserves, linked to history, environment and traditions. According to partners and participants to the event, “the experience in Novo Mesto was useful and the agenda well planned: discovering local monuments and traditions arises both a sense of wonder and familiarity, because we may find out several common traits linking this foreign place to our own reality”.

Co-developing joint actions for women inclusion in Morocco

In Tetouan (Morocco), the Local Democracy Agency Northern-Morocco, together with ADEO (Association de développement et de protection de l’environnement de Oued Laou et de son bassin versant) have launched training courses on mechanisms of citizen participation in public decision-making and on gender integration mechanisms into local public policies, targeting local officials, women and representatives of civil society associations, under the EGAL project. The aim of these training courses is to promote gender equality in public action in the province of Tetouan, where the project, carried out by ALDA with the financial support of the Fons Mallorquí, is being implemented.

These trainings are conducted in response to a diagnosis carried out by the ADEO association on gender characteristics in the municipalities of the province of Tetouan. The study therefore enabled the identification of actors and areas that may benefit from the capacity building programme on citizen participation and gender mainstreaming in public decision-making in priority.
Thus, approximately thirty participants were selected to participate in the training: representatives of local associations and women’s organisations, municipal representatives, members of committees on equal opportunities and gender mainstreaming and of budget committees belonging to the five targeted municipalities. Participants collaborated using local gender inclusive methods through consultative tools and mechanisms, taking into consideration the various legal, social and practical aspects. Together, they undertook a strategic discussion to co-construct a priority gender issue within each of the five municipalities by assessing the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for cooperation related to the state of local democracy in the area, and developed a project for a gender inclusive participatory activity, through the technical training on project engineering provided by the expert in participatory democracy.

This activity encouraged collective thinking and the development of concrete ideas for gender equality. It also provided actors with real expertise in terms of context-related analytical diagnosis, project development (development of a logical framework) and monitoring and evaluation (preparation of roadmaps). Beyond the impact that this expertise will have on the future work of each of these actors, the EGAL project will allow the techniques learned to be put into direct practice, with a sub-granting scheme to be launched soon.
The EGAL project (Gender Equality in Local Action) seeks for the empowerment and promotion of the gender perspective in the target municipalities, by implementing a series of training-action activities in order to implement project-ideas designed by the beneficiaries themselves in consultation with public decision-makers. ALDA and its local partners, the ADEO association and the Local Democracy Agency Northern-Morocco, are committed, through this project, to making the operationalization of participatory democracy mechanisms effective, while strengthening municipal action. The final objective of the project and of ALDA is to improve the interrelationship between citizens and elected officials in order to encourage them to work together in the implementation of participatory, inclusive and egalitarian public policies.

The Community Museum: a winning receipt combining culture and activism

“Ke nova?” (“What’s new?”) they would ask in the city of Herceg Novi their fellow citizen, in the typical slang manner of the coastal region. The Local Democracy Agency team members, based on the impressions from the project’s meeting in Herceg Novi, could, in response to this question, answer through the rich impressions that reflect the aroma of the this region, its “originals”, as well as the paths of Ivo Andric (1892- 1975), famous writer from the ex-Yugoslavia, Nobel Prize in Literature in 1961.

In accordance with the objectives of the Co.Co.Tour Project, the Local Democracy Agency and the project partners, among which the Municipality of Herceg Novi, had a productive meeting and discussions with the aim of forming an eco and community museum in the surroundings of the house of Ivo Andric. In order to broaden this territorial analysis and the creation of the functional concept forseseen by the community museum, the partners organised various encounters to understand Andric’s personality, following the traces he left in Herceg Novi. Bosiljka Pusic and Vojo Stanic, Andric’s contemporaries and people with whom he spent time together, plunged us in the magic of storytelling with some flickers of Ivo’s personality, with his patience and wisdom.

Other conversations with the CSO Ruke Herceg Novi, the Online magazine “Suncev Zrak ” (The world in our own eyes), the CSO “New Chance in New “, the Youth Cultural Center Herceg Novi and the Radio Jadran depicted Herceg Novi in ​​the present time as a city rich in architectural beauties, castles and greenery, hiding as well gems of crafts, creativity and local activism that can contribute to the development of this community museum.

ALDA пересекла океан, чтобы поделиться знаниями о делиберативной демократии

ALDA приняла участие в мероприятие «Deliberative Democracy Exchange» – DDEX 2019, которое состоялось в Соединенные Штаты, организованная Kettering Foundation, американский некоммерческий фонд, специализирующийся на совместных исследованиях в области демократии.

Анна Дитта, директор по развитию проектов в ALDA, приняла участие в мероприятии, которое объединяет организации гражданского общества, местные органы власти, академиков и журналистов из более чем 140 стран мира. Во время этой недельной встречи участники поделились опытом и знаниями по сложной и увлекательной теме делиберативной демократии.

Что означает делиберативной? После уточняющих слов г-на Дэвида Мэтьюса, президента Kettering Foundation, „обдумывание — это способность судить. Каждый человек обладает этой способностью. Наша роль заключается в том, чтобы люди раскрыли свои ресурсы и способности для обсуждения вопросов, которые имеют решающее значение для всего сообщества”.

Фонд Кеттеринга не только обсуждал и обменивался передовым опытом, но и обменивался мнениями о своих исследованиях, в том числе концептуальными и практическими подходами для содействия демократическому взаимодействию.

ALDA, вместе с другими Агентствами Местной Демократии, очень рады и гордятся тем, что делятся своим опытом и узнают о совещательной демократии и участии граждан с точки зрения участников из разных слоев общества.

ألدا  تعبر المحيط الأطلسي بحثا عن تقاسم المعرفة والمفاهيم حول الديمقراطية التداولية

بلغت ألدا أرض الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية لتشارك في الدورة 2019 من “تبادل الأفكار حول منظومة الديمقراطية التداولية” DDEX 2019,التي تستضيفها مؤسسة كاترينغ (Kettering Foundation), المؤسسة الأمريكية التي تعمل من لغايات غير ربحية والمتخصصة في محاور البحث التعاوني في مجال الديمقراطية.

شاركت آنا ديتا, المسؤولة بقسم تنمية المشاريع في ألدا, في هذه التظاهرة التي جمعت, جنبا إلى جنب, كلا من منظمات المجتمع المدني والسلطات المحلية والجامعيين والصحافيين الذين جاؤوا من أكثر من 140 بلد في كافة أنحاء العالم. خلال هذه اللقاء الذي تواصل على مدى أسبوع كامل, تمكن المشاركون من تقاسم التجارب وتبادل الخبرات حول جملة من المحاور الشائكة والشيقة التي تخص الديمقراطية التداولية.

ما هو معنى  مصطلح التداولية؟ على إثر الكلمة التي ألقاها رئيس مؤسسة كاترينغ (Kettering Foundation), تناول الكلمة السيد دافيد ماثيوز ليوضح أن “التداولية هي القدرة على الحكم في الأشياء. كل كائن حي له القدرة على ذلك. كما أن دورنا يتمثل في تمكين الأشخاص من الخوص في أعماق أنفسهم واكتشاف الموارد والقدرات التي يمتلكونها على التداول حول كافة المحاور التي تعتبر مصيرية لكافة أفراد المجتمع بدون أي تمييز أو استثناء”.

بالإضافة إلى النقاشات والتفاعل وتبادل الأفكار والآراء حول الممارسات الجيدة, اكتست التظاهرة التي احتضنتها مؤسسة كاترينغ (Kettering Foundation), أهمية قصوى في أنها مكنت من تقاسم الأفكار والاستفادة من البحوث المنجزة, بما فيها المقاربات النظرية والتطبيقية لدفع منظومة المشاركة الديمقراطية وتعزيزها.

تعرب ألدا وكافة وكالات الديمقراطية المحلية الأخرى عن استعدادها الكامل واعتزازها بتقاسم هذه التجربة واكتشاف المزيد حول منظومة الديمقراطية التداولية ومساهمة المواطنين بصفتهم مشاركون مالكون لأرضية مختلفة ومتعددة.

Что означает делиберативной? После уточняющих слов г-на Дэвида Мэтьюса, президента Kettering Foundation, „обдумывание — это способность судить. Каждый человек обладает этой способностью. Наша роль заключается в том, чтобы люди раскрыли свои ресурсы и способности для обсуждения вопросов, которые имеют решающее значение для всего сообщества”.

Фонд Кеттеринга не только обсуждал и обменивался передовым опытом, но и обменивался мнениями о своих исследованиях, в том числе концептуальными и практическими подходами для содействия демократическому взаимодействию.

ALDA, вместе с другими Агентствами Местной Демократии, очень рады и гордятся тем, что делятся своим опытом и узнают о совещательной демократии и участии граждан с точки зрения участников из разных слоев общества.

Nakon otvorenog poziva za mlade umetnike i kreativne misli koje je pokrenula LDA Nikšić, pojedinci i predstavnici različitih grupa su se okupili i izrodili niz inovativnih ideja. To je bilo usmereno na uključivanje građana kroz umetnost i dalo novi podsticaj radionici.

Dali su novi okvir akcije za organizovanje tri Pop-up galerija koje su planirane da povećaju društveno i kulturno bogatstvo naše lokalne zajednice. Letne Pop-up galerije su dizajnirane da budu neformalne umjetničke prezentacije koje pružaju novi pogled na poznate javne prostore, doprinoseći novom urbanom identitetu grada. Pop-up galerije ohrabruju posmatrače da komuniciraju sa umetničkim delima i pozivaju na diskusiju i debatu o relevantnim društvenim pitanjima. “Letna pop-up galerija” će se održati u periodu od jula do septembra 2019. godine u devet lokalnih zajednica u 6 zemalja EU i zapadnog Balkana: Mostar, Prijedor, Zavidovići (Bosna i Hercegovina), Knjaževac i Subotica (Srbija), Nikšić (Crna Gora), Sisak (Hrvatska), Heraklion (Grčka) i Vlore (Albanija). Na sastanku su učestvovali profesori Snježana Perović Bošković, Tamara Janjušević, Marija Lazarević i Milena Krivokapić, zajedno sa gospodinom Milosavom Milatovićem, Angelom Jovović, članicom Info Point-LDA, Anom Milović Jasikovac, koordinatoricom projekta i Milenom Radonjić, Majom Nuculović i Tomkom Živković, asistentima na projektu.

 

مشروع كلنك (CLINK): الفنانون الشبان يعملون على تأمين التواصل بين المجتمعات المحلية

خلال اللقاء الذي تم بمقر وكالة الديمقراطية المحلية لنكسيك, يوم الخميس 27 جوان (حزيران), تولى الشركاء في هذا المشروع مناقشة الأنشطة القادمة في إطار مشروع كلنك (CLINK) الذي يهدف إلى تأمين التواصل بين 10 مجتمعات محلية, بما في ذلك تراثهم الثقافي وتأثيرهم على المحيط الذي يتسم بموروث ثقافي ثري وزاخر في أوروبا. على إثر الدعوة المفتوحة التي وجهت للفنانين الشبان وأصحاب العقول المبدعة والخلاقة, والتي تم نشرها من قبل وكالة الديمقراطية المحلية بنيكسيك, قرر العديد من الأفراد وممثلين عن مجموعات مختلفة ومتعددة الالتقاء واقتراح عدد من الأفكار المجددة. تهدف كافة هذه المساهمات إلى استيعاب المواطن, بواسطة الفن, وإلى إعطاء دفع إضافي لأنشطة الورشة.

كما وفر المشاركون إطارا عمليا جديدا لتنظيم ثلاثة أروقة اطلاع تم التخطيط لها لإثراء الرصيد الاجتماعي والثقافي الذي تتمتع به المجتمعات المحلية. تم تصميم أروقة الاطلاع الصيفية هذه لتعكس أمثلة فنية غير رسمية تقدم رؤية جديدة عن الفضاءات العمومية, وذلك بالمساهمة في منح هوية حضرية جديدة للمدينة. تشجع أروقة الاطلاع الملاحظين على التفاعل من العمل الثقافي وتدعو إلى الحوار والنقاش حول المسائل الاجتماعية ذات العلاقة. ستنظم “أروقة الاطلاع الصيفية” خلال الفترة جويلية (تموز) وسبتمبر (أيلول) 2019, في 9 بلديات محلية تتواجد في 6 بلدان من الاتحاد الأوروبي ومنطقة غرب البلقان:  مستار وبريدور وزافيدوفيتشي (البوسنة والهرسك), وكنيازيفاتش وسيبوتيكا (صربيا), ونيكسيك (الجبل الأسود), وسيساك (كرواتيا), وهرقليون (اليونان), و بلور (ألبانيا. كما شهد اللقاء مشاركة الأساتذة: سنيزانا بيروتشيكا بوسكوفيتش, تامارا ينسافيتش, ماريا لازارافيتش و ميلينا كرفوكابيتش, إضافة إلى السيد ميلوساف ميلاتوفيتش, أنجلا يونوفيتش, عضو أنفو-بوينت, ألدا, آنا ميلوفيتش يازيكوفاك, منسقة المشروع, وميلينا رادونيتش وتومكا زيكوفيتش, مساعدتا المشروع.
