About the workshop

The workshop was led by Croatian activist and cultural worker Teodor Celakoski, and the participants had the opportunity to use different examples of citizen initiatives (like Right to the City, Srđ is Ours!, and We are Not Giving Up Our Roads!) to gain insight into specific methods of wide social mobilization against privatization of public spaces and infrastructure.

For the last ten years, Teodor has been engaged in the initiative Right to the City as well as in various campaigns aimed against privatization of public spaces and goods in Zagreb and in Croatia.

The NELT Company organizes the second cycle of the NELT Educational Program aimed to students, in a collaboration with Nova Iskra and Gallery 12 Hub. Within the third cycle of NEP, 25 selected students will have an opportunity to develop their practical skills from the field of creativity and entrepreneurship, but also to spread their views about critical thinking, teamwork, project development. The trainees will participate in the unique experience of collaboration and knowledge, this year under the slogan THINK FUTURE!
