The ‘Sketchbook’ project by Marina MIlanović includes four workshops in a row. The workshops will be implemented within the visual arts week, in the Egység Cultural Station, from 24 until 28 September.
The first two workshops (on 24 and 25 September) will be implemented from 5 until 9 p.m., while the other two (on 27 and 28 September) will be held from 12 until 4 p.m.
The workshops are intended for literature, applied and fine arts students.
The programme is free of charge, while due to the limited number of people, it is necessary to apply via e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org, until 20 September. The e-mail must contain three works (a sketch, poem, text, design or illustration) and a short biography.
Participants will have a chance to learn how to make an art book themselves, i.e., they will go through the complete art process – writing, illustrating and composition for publications. Every participant will have their own workbook at the end of the workshop.
The workshops are led by Marina Milanović, an illustrator and Vitomirka Trebovac, a poet.
Marina Milanović works in the field of drawing, illustration and graphic design, which she uses in her poetics and narration, children’s illustrated book, different graphic materials and publications. She also holds workshops and lectures.
She has held four exhibitions so far (Platna i vokovizuelna poezija, crteži i strip Sanitar, Krzno crne životinje, Prozračnobelo) and has participated at several exhibitions.
Since 2020, she has been engaged as a lecturer at the Department of Digital Arts of the Faculty of Media and Communications in Belgrade.
Vitomirka Trebovac has written three books of poetry: ‘Blue in Colour’, ‘All the Trees, all the Children and all the Bicycles in Me’ and ‘Days of the Full Moon’.
She is the co-editor of the book of poetry ‘This is Not a Home, Female Poets about Migration’ and the editor of the book ‘Novi Sad Neo-Avant-Garde / Selection from Poetry’. She is engaged in the bookstore and publishing centre ‘Bulevar Books’ in Novi Sad.
The fourth ‘Kaleidoscope of Culture’ will be held from 2 September until 8 October 2021. During five weeks, this yearlong project of culture of togetherness that connects artists, cultural institutions, non-governmental organisations, citizens and visitors through various processes, will present five types of art. At the end of summer, the Kaleidoscope of Culture will present spaces and programmes throughout the city, promoting a unique image of the diversity of Novi Sad.
