We communicate through photography, with no age or location restrictions. Photography lovers have the opportunity to show their skill in photography and be part of an international project. We are planning more selection of works, and deadline the first selection is 30/06/2020. and be presented for the Festival Cirkuliranje, which is scheduled to take place in late June or early July, depending on events related to the imposed restrictions.

So far, more than 100 individuals have been involved in the Fabrika Fotografa project through online classes with the topic „Self-isolation“.

The project „BANAT – THE EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE – towards 2021“ deals with the artistic creation and promotion of the culture of the region, which has many parts (art colonies, theatre performances, music concerts, art workshops, education, public lectures, forums, conferences, etc.).
