Grantee profile


Heartefact was established in 2009 in Serbia with the objective to support critical awareness and artistic engagement on current social and political issues with an emphasis on a responsible culture of remembrance, democratic values and respect for human rights. For the past 10 years, the organization has produced dozens of theatre performances, exhibitions and artistic competitions; it has promoted regional artistic exchanges and platforms while also supporting young and grassroots artists through small grants. While focused initially on the legacy of the violent past in the region, the organization has increasingly supported artistic creation and exchange on broader social issues such as LGBTI rights, refugee rights, discrimination and freedom of speech among other issues. The organization has specialized in the area of performing and visual arts. It has sought to support cross-disciplinary forms of expression and grassroots organizations
