5th, 16th and 17th of July, high school students and activists from Zavidovići worked on wall design at the Partizan Sports Center, on the implementation of the "Pokreni se ( Move yourself)!" project.
The bigest share of project implementation was taken by Secondary school students, and the project was funded from the Social Day of the Association of High School Students in Bosnia and Herzegovina and through the Local Youth Fund within the Balkan Regional Platform for Youth Participation and Dialogue.
The project idea is to send a clear affirmative message to school students and all the young people in our local community.
Secondary school students from Zavidovici held two workshops, after which they approached the implementation of a concrete idea with the help of Jasmina Imamović, an artist from Zavidovici, who was drawing a central message along the motives of our city.
The wall on which the graffity needed to be drawn was in a really bad shape, so the Secondary school students with the assist of professionals workers have repaired the wall and made it possible to draw the graffiti on the wall.
- The very aim of our project is to "awaken" young people in our local community. We have just decided on this kind of action that involves the participation of a large number of young people, as they can explore their activism and send a message to the general public as well as promote art as a new way of communicating and develop their creativity. Also, the location where the project was implemented is extremely favorable because of its positioning, as the wall is located at the intersection of local schools, numerous sports facilities, but also close to a large number of coffee shops. In this way, we wanted to show the local population that activism is moving to positive changes“, the initiatiors of idea told us.
"First of all, it is important to say that young people are designers of this activity, but also implementers. To us, the LDA Zavidovići is really glad that young people used the Local Youth initiative fund from our European project, "said Dino Sinanovic, a professional associate for youth work.
"Our initiative itself is based on the reconstruction of the wall at the sports ground Partizan, which had no specific purpose other than separating basketball and road terrain and now on the wall we have a graffiti with the motivational message "Pokreni se (Move yourself)!" which applies to all high school students, young people in our local community, but also to all of our citizens, "said Amar Buljubasic, Project Coordinator.
"What I would like to point out is the support of our citizens, the public, who left positive comments on the web every day, but also on the ground. Also, there was support from local businessmen and companies who made their contribution to this project. "
The idea of the Secondary school Students was supported trough Local Youth Initiative Fund in the framework of Balkan Regional Platform for Youth Participation and Dialogue.
