External activities | press to exit project space | Jovanka Popova | Work In Progress #1 Festival | organized by FRABAAC, Prishtina | 19 – 31 July, 2016.

Jovanka Popova, program coordinator of press to exit project space participated with the presentation of press to exit project space activities at Work In Progress #1 Festival. Work In Progress #1 is a festival of talks and artworks’ presentations. It is about artists run projects/ spaces and the “part” of artists, curators and cultural activists in the protection and revitalization of cultural heritage.

Work In Progress #1 is the first project implemented by FRABAAC (non-governmental organization created in Kosovo in December 2015). The idea of this project is to propose to artists, curators and cultural workers an occasion to share their experiences in the organization of exhibitions, cultural projects, or in the management of art spaces. The goal of FRABAAC is to take part in the process of empowerment of the artistic and cultural community of Kosovo through the presentation of practices and the organization of encounters and exchanges. FRABAAC also aims at presenting the work of artists and create connections between artists and curators from different regions. For its first project, FRABAAC will focus on one medium, the video which is used by artists in different ways.
