Opis projektu(Working) Title: Do YU remember? Our idea is to find partner organizations from all the ex Yugoslavian republics and provinces (local self-governments, theatres, civil organizations, research/cultural institutions) for a project which would deal with the period between the end of WWII until 1991 in Yugoslavia. We would also like to find partners from countries which bordered Yugoslavia: Bulgaria, Romania, Greece, Albania, Italy, Austria and Hungary. Topics would be: Tito and "open" communism (art, music and fashion, Western influence), work actions as a form of volunteerism, Relay of Youth, idea of brotherhood and unity, and everything else that made Yugoslavia great and internationally respected. On the other hand, there would be an analysis of socio-politic circumstances which lead to the end of the Yugoslavian idea and the beginning of the war, cult of personality, national/nationalist hatred, hate speech. Partners from non-ex-Yu countries will testify to the external image of Yugoslavia during prosperity, and then, during the years of war. A series of lectures/debates would be organized where sociologists, historians, psychologists, ethnographers would continue a dialogue to abovementioned subjects, and those events would be followed by activities characteristic of Yugoslavia in that given period – work actions, Relay of Youth, concerts with music from that period, fashion shows, involving participants, as well as local community. The venues of the debates would be decided during the writing of the project proposal. The lectures would also deal with the dangers of extreme nationalism and hatred which lead to the war, refugees and destruction, as it is a very up-to-date subject. A parallel would be drawn between Yugoslavia and the European Union as both represent a confederation of countries. Story of Yugoslavia could be a cautionary tale for the EU, and the theatres could prepare a play based on the results of debates which would be performed in all the partner countries with the goal of raising awareness. Partner organisations role in the project will be: providing participants for the events. Also, the partners are more than welcome to host some of the events, in accordance with their capacities.
