BEOGRADSKI LIFTOVI istrazivacka avantura sa Darijusom, EVS volonterom iz Litvanije

Elevator – is it just a vertically moving car / means to move between the floors? What if we turned our down-to-earth perception upside down and gave the way to our imagination?
Have you ever thought that using elevator is an inseparable part of our every day’s life? Indeed we are more dependent on these machines than we could imagine. Once they stop working we have to change our daily habits.
The ELEVATOR TRIP will be organized on the 22th of August. If you would like to participate, you should apply by the 20th of August by filling in the application form and sending it back to firstname.lastname@example.org. The workshop can invite only up to 16 people. So, first comes, first served!
In the application form you should write the address of one particular elevator in one of the municipalities in Belgrade that according to you would be the most interesting elevator in Belgrade -Weirdest, Most colorful, Funniest, Creepiest, Least safe, Scariest etc. During the workshop, there will be 3-4 groups formed. Each participant will lead the group to his/her own elevator of choice and explain why they think it is the funniest/creepiest/least safe etc. Each group will have the task to make as interesting as possible photos or videos, which would later on be put on voting among Young Researchers of Serbia Facebook page with more than 4600 people! All the groups will have their work presented in Studentski kulturni centar in September.
This is a unique chance to see Belgrade from a different prospective and to learn about one part of its history.
