Citizens and guests of Novi Sad who visited Satelit, Futoška and Liman Green Markets on Satruday, 27 June were pleasantly surprised. Instead of usual stands and casual chit-chat they also found 9 professional singers who made their day with collection of urban traditional folk songs, which was part of the promotional activities of the candidacy of Novi Sad for the title of the European Capital of Culture.
– Novi Sad used to be a capital of culture both in former Yugoslavia and in entire Europe – said one of the Novi Sad older ladies with nostalgia in her voice. Indeed, judging by smiles, this was a positive surprise for all who were there, and people also asked if such activities can happen more often. Some of our fellow female citizens sang along, and many admitted that for a long time they didn’t have such goosebumps.
After performances at green markets, Novi Sad Nonet presented the candidacy the caravan ‘My Serbia’, which was organised later that day at the ‘Štrand’ city’s river beach.
Culture on the move is a programme that will include series of promotional activities, so that citizens and visitors of Novi Sad could be participate more in cultural activities. On 12 June, the youngest citizens will be able to in enjoy puppet show at playgrounds. We will timely inform the public on this.
