Within the project “Three corners of culture”, conducted by the association of citizens “HBO Color Media Events” in collaboration with the Municipality of New Belgrade, “Color Press Group” and “Color Media Communications”, the School for comics and caricature at New Belgrade hosted the second cultural “corner”.
This School, led by Mileta Miloradović, a distinguished caricaturist from “Jež” magazine, was founded in 2001, and until today over four hundred children have been its pupils. Every year another twenty students start attending the School, whilst the most talented and industrious students, during these fifteen years, have won over fifty prizes around the world. Their works are well-known in Belgrade and throughout the entire Serbia, in many European countries, and even so far as in Tokyo.
Depending on the means received throughout the year, they organize the competition “Strip kaiš”, whereas during summer they organize free workshops aimed at children aged seven to nineteen.
They were happy to take part in the project “Three Corners of Culture”, and with the temperature of over forty degrees, they did their job perfectly well. Knowing that this project, in addition to promoting culture and its values also has a humanitarian note, and that the second “corner” had the slogan “Deca-deci” (“From children to children”), straight from the heart they granted their works to the humanitarian aid project.
Auction of these great caricatures and comics segments will be held on June, 29th 2016 at 7 PM, at New Belgrade’s “Dom kulture Studentski grad”, within the humanitarian multimedia exhibition Belgrade – Vienna – Budapest. The collected means from the auction will be transferred to the account of the New Belgrade Humanitarian Foundation.
