Pass the Torch: presentation by the name comes last collective

International project Sarajevo, 2021. Building a community center. © The name comes last / Supported by Toestand Collective & Erasmus

Join us for a presentation by the name comes last collective about their project.

Kosovo is full of abandoned buildings. And it is equally full of neighbourhoods that lack any kind of welcoming space for communities to gather – or to even form in the first place. In response to this mismatch, a group of local citizens and cultural activists from Prishtina together with the Belgian collective Toestand, transformed an unfinished shell of a building into a thriving community centre, known as Termokiss.

Having since shared their methods with communities in Tetovo, Tirana and Sarajevo, members of the Termokiss Community recently joined forces with The young community leader center, an activist collective whose members come from the Roma, Egyptian and Ashkali communities in Fushë Kosovë, a small town to the south-east of Prishtina. Together, they have launched the long-term community engagement process Pass the Torch.

Their objective is to help build a new collective in Fushë Kosovë, which, somewhere down the track, would find, make and run a space of its own. The first steps in this process include researching and mapping needs and desires, scouting locations and developing new skills as identified by the collective-in-the-making.

The presentation will take place from 15.00-16.00 on Sunday the 24th of July.
