Being a teenager is hard, but being one out of society’s standards of normal can be lonely and confusing. We all know what its like to grow up and hide parts of ourselves just to fit in. Belgrade, like most places can be very unforgiving when it comes to alternative interests and interests out of the mainstream. But what if there was a place that kids could go to and they didn’t have to hide? What if there was a place where they could be themselves, where they could be open without judgment? Having a place like this can make a world of difference for these kids and teens.

Belgrade doesn't have many places for teens to go to and feel safe and find like minded people.We are campaigning to buy a place of our own that will be the Cultural Center Sakurabana.We have no financial support from our government here in Belgrade. We all worked several jobs for years to keep this place running and now we and the kids need your help!

Our goal here is to offer teenagers a safe haven. A place they can come to and open up, be themselves without fear of being bullied or judged, a place to learn, most importantly a place to learn tolerance towards each other. We know how valuable guidance is at that age. A lot of the teenagers that come to CC Sakurabana are from broken homes, single parent households, from families with financial issues, from difficult family situations or even have medical conditions.

This collection does not have any deviations yet!
Sincerest apologies to all our artists for running late on this project, we have some good news and less good news for some (and yet an opportunity for some others).

Good news are that all our feature artists will receive a digital version of the art book, and the less good news are that our release date has been pushed back for the start of next year.
This is a good opportunity to spread the news to all your artist friends and colleagues, and let them know that slots for art are stil opened!

Organizing a project of such global scale will need a lot of efforts and work on our side, engaging the media, organizing the marketing and management of the campaign, and will require quite a lot of time for us to perfect. Thank you all for your patience and kindness.

For any additional questions, please send a note to our main admin :iconmistiqarts:

Whatever happened to this artbook? Did it happen?

Ps: I must be really annoying for coming back each year asking what happened and who the winners are.

The project has been put on hold sadly, I wish I could help, but I am not the main organizer, just a recruiter, all your works are stored, and there is no winner, its not that tipe of contest. I will update if I ever hear from my superiors regarding this, I am truly sorry for such a huge delay.
