Photo and video campaign “Odmotaj film” (Unroll the Film) aims to promote valuable contribution of national minorities to the rich and diverse heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
17 national minority groups recognized by the Government of Bosnia and Herzegovina have been living in different parts of the country for centuries.
Albanians, Jews, Roma, Hungarians, Germans, Czech, Poles and other groups that have migrated to B&H brought valuable knowledge and specific crafts that had significant impact on social and economic development of this country.
Regardless of importance of the role of national minorities in the development of this society, the contribution of these individuals and groups mainly stays invisible in today’s society. The campaign “Odmotaj film” aims to spark interest among the citizens of B&H about culture and heritage of national minorities and their role in urban, cultural, educational and any other development.
All citizens of B&H are invited to take part in the campaign by sending photo or video material portraiting the impact of national minorities on: architecture, art, cousine, folklore, traditional crafts and industry.
Received photos and/or videos will be published on the CHwB B&H’s official social media networks, Facebook and Instagram, in the period from 19 December 2017 to 30 April 2018. Ten photos and videos with the highest number of likes (from both networks) will be promoted at an exhibition in Sarajevo, which will be organized in 2018.
All photos and video works should be sent to: gro.b1563403443whc@h1563403443ib1563403443
The campaign is organized as part of the project titled “InVisible: cultural rights of national minorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina”, funded by the United States Government.
