Spring in Cultural Stations: Art by Local Authors and Events for Children


Workshops, exhibitions, performance, opera for children – this spring, the cultural stations in Novi Sad bring various content. Thanks to their capacity, cultural stations raised capacities of the local scene as well and, despite the pandemic, implemented more than 300 artistic and cultural events in the last year. During the first three months of 2021, more than 50 events have been successfully held both online and in-person adhering to all the measures.

Relying on their primary goals, which are decentralising culture and citizens’ participation, cultural stations continue to promote culture as a way of life in Novi Sad.
