BeFem, a festival of feministic culture and action, wants to promote ideas and politics of feminism and to encourage young women to get involved and contribute in re/constructing reality. The festival is a continuation of what the feminist movement has been doing so far and at the same time it is opening new fields of action through dialogue and initiatives with feminists with different background. This year BeFem was formed through cooperation between activists, theorists and musicians from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Sweden. Financial support is given by the Swedish Institute.
The GRAD European Centre for Culture and Debate, also known as KC GRAD, was opened on April 16, 2009. It is a product of a joint initiative of the Cultural Front Belgrade and the Amsterdam Felix Meritis Foundation.
KC Grad is situated in an old 1884 warehouse located in the old, neglected and rundown industrial neighborhood in the very heart of Belgrade, on the banks of the Sava River. The KC GRAD building consists of two levels of a total of 397 square meters in size. It houses a large gallery space and an art library on the upper floor. The Steve Austen café bar and the Gradstor art shop are located on the ground floor. In addition to exhibitions, KC GRAD also organizes conferences, debates, book launches, workshops, music programs, film screenings and many other events.
