Name of Residency: Inspiring Change Residency

Inspiring Change training course & residency is about professionalizing your creative ideas and supporting your entrepreneurial initiatives. They offer education within the fields of project management, design thinking, visual identity & branding, marketing & social media, and public speaking & pitching project ideas. All you need is a good idea – and the team will help you do the rest! By the end of the two-week programme, you are equipped with skills to develop a kick-ass project, inspire your community and grow your network on a global level. In short, Inspiring Change mission is to help you emerge and overcome the obstacles you weren’t thinking about during your art school. The workshops are facilitated by appropriate experts in these fields, with wide experience in developing creative projects.

The organizers value the concept of mentorship a lot. Mentorship is a two-way learning process where the mentor is guiding the artist by sharing the personal experience relevant to the topic of development. In return, the mentor also learns from the artist and gains a new, fresh perspective on the creative process. During the residency and training course, each resident is paired with a mentor from the world of business, someone who can help nurture your creative ideas and give them visibility. Your mentor is a person who helps your professional growth as an artist, by sharing the experience around project management, community building and promoting good ideas. And least, but not less important – Inspiring Change residency gives you the opportunity to meet international creators in the heart of Belgrade, share, co-create and discover Balkan art scene. The 21st is the perfect time to go cross-continental: in 2018, Inspiring Change residency gathered artists from five continents and started building an international community of creative, supportive and successful people.
