Introducing Tamara Vasiljević
You want art to be appreciated in Serbia and to raise general awareness of our rivers being endangered. We believe that art, and culture in general, is just as endangered as our rivers. Therefore, we launch an initiative #umetnicizaodbranureka or #аrtists4rivers (if you are an artist or you know one, learn more here)
Our fight has attracted a lot of you guys and we would like to draw your attention to the people who take inspiration from nature, and who support the defense of rivers. In our section Art Pieces you can make a donation and get a gift where a part of it goes to the artist, while the other part serves as support to the Defend the Rivers of Stara Planina (Balkan Mountains).
Why Do I Participate
Some people prefer material gain to common sense. Rivers are our life and mountains our lungs. Rivers are pushed into the pipes, forests are exploited. If we continue to treat nature so unconsciously, our children won't have anything to breathe.
