Art and deed

The Centre for criminal prevention and post penalty support NEOSTART presented a Scrapbook of the protégées of the Correctional home in Kruševac, Serbia. The Scrapbook is result of the workshops of the project “Art and deed” implemented in cooperation with the organisation Crna ovca. The project was supported by the Centrifuga project of the Erste bank.

The promotion was held on 29 June 2018 in the House of Human Rights in Belgrade. Those who attended had an opportunity to talk to the protégées, ask them about the project and their involvement and buy some of the jewellery they produced.
