Niš feminist organizations’ activists have been diligent in setting up another FemiNiš - Festival of women’s activism and art. This year festival events will be held in several city locations between September 20th and 25thFor Niš visitors and guests from the southSerbia and the region, we did our best to offer a full and current program that will present novelties from an ever active feminist scene. Moreover, we want to show a rich feminist theory and valuable women activism in this region.

Festival’s visitors and guests can expect an abundant cultural and art content such as exhibition of contemporary artists, book promotions and blogs by female authors, and several documentary and feature length movies dealing with women and their issues in a modern world, all by women authors. In addition, in the course of discussions and workshops we will have an opportunity to exchange ideas about the effects of women struggle and support mechanism we offer and receive within the feminist community.
