About the program



The project “Serbia and Kosovo: Intercultural Icebreakers” has been developed by the Helsinki Committee for Human Rights in Serbia. The project aims at renewing old ties and creating new ones among young people, academic and artistic circles, media outlets and civil society organizations from Belgrade and Pristina, thus contributing to dialogue, reconciliation and normalization between the two societies.


We are after breathing life into intercultural dialogue between Serbia and Kosovo so as to:

Support implementation of Belgrade-Pristina Agreement;

Promote joint, cross-border activities by young people, academic circles, the media and civil society organizations;

Break down stereotypes on both sides through art, culture, debate and youth exchanges;

Ensure quality media coverage of Kosovo-Serbia reconciliation and normalization processes that are crucial to the two country’s accession to the EU.


With support of different partner organizations and donors we initiate and organize different activities such are seminars/study tours for young artists from Serbia and Kosovo; cultural activities such are festivals "A Month of Pristina in Belgrade" and "A Month of Belgrade in Pristina" with young artists presenting their art works to the public in Serbia/Kosovo; joint cross border campaigns and many other actions.

This web page will be carrying information about all the program activities and advertizing them well in advance. It will also be promoting other pertinent news stories and other written or video material on Serb-Albanian cultural events.
