Eleventh festival of women’s arts and activism in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Join – Take part – Reach out!
From 8th to 11th of September 2016 in Sarajevo
With great pleasure we invite you to the recognizable feminist festival PitchWise (PW) festival of women’s arts and activism in BiH which gathers women artists and activists of different generations in BiH and the world.
CURE Foundation is organizing the eleventh PitchWise festival of women’s art and activism through feminist theory and practice from the 8th – 11th of September 2016 in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The festival has grown out of the need to take derelict and neglected areas and transform them for a meeting which will bring together socially engaged artists, activists, theorists, feminists and all others interested in women’s issues in BiH and the region.
CURE Foundation has always worked towards connecting feminist work and culture, and this year’s PW festival brings together artists and activists from women’s groups from BiH and the neighboring countries.
Central topic of the eleventh PitchWise festival is:
Pitchwise CONNECTING – questioning individual activist experiences and contemporary social contexts in the fight against patriarchy!
Think globally – act locally!
This year PitchWise connects and questions the public space with a personal story – movement – touch and sound. With our personal engagement we take over public space, question and transform the society and take responsibility.
We are happy to have you at PitchWise festival this year, so please fill in the application form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org latest until Thursday, , 25th of August 2016 until midnight.
The festival, by the feminist tradition, is organized on the principle of volunteerism and has limited funding. We will provide transport and accommodation for registered participants, and applications will be considered as they arrive.
Due to limited funds, priority is given to those who first submit the application form, as well as those that are able to cover at least part of the estimated costs.

After the submission of a return ticket, payment will be made via bank. Those participants who do not have a bank account and/or identification card may submit the required information of their parent/legal guardian.
