Hello! I need your help!

As u know i’ll be part of the journey in Africa for 200 day as part of the Great African Caravan!  We are 12 artists from various parts of the world, travelling in Africa across 12 countries by road for 200 days and 15000Kms.

I would be working with local artists and community to promote Sustainable Development Goals and collaborate with the local African artists to bring out the best of both cultures. I would also promote Kosovo culture and create a new understanding of our country for the world! I need you help in doing this, please see below the detailed information of the project and donate in whichever way you can!

The mission does not end with the project. These artworks will initiate dialogues, stir discussions, spark debates and gather more support from around the globe.
