ROCK Fest na Uni 2012

Festival se održava u Novom Gradu na sjeverozapadu BiH. Iako se održavao i ranije u nekoliko navrata i pod drugim nazivima, ovaj put uz izmjenjen karakter želimo konačno da ga postavimo na stabilne noge (opet uz skroman početak), ovaj put uz pomoć Omladinske Banke Novi Grad koja je dala pola sredstava i MONO-a. Potrebno je da se mladima u Novom Gradu i šire pruži nešto drugačije i autentično.
Za mjesto održavanja odabran je stadion Mlakve u Novom Gradu, tačnije parking stadiona. Udaljen od centra grada oko

1,5 km ili 15ak min. hoda. Smješten je uz samu rijeku Unu (jedna od najljepših i najčistijih u BiH) gdje se mogu naći odlična mjesta za kamp, roštilj i kupanje (naravno sve je stvar vašeg izbora). Svakako će te se naći u dobrom društvu sa hladnim pivom i dobrom MUZIKOM.
Potreba za promocijom AUTORSKIH, (neafirmisanih), ALTERNATIVNIH muzičkih bendova iz grada predstavlja inicijalnu ideju u organizovanju ROCK festa NA UNI.
To je ujedno i želja da se kroz muzički izražaj prenese jasna i glasna poruka društvu i okruženju u kojem žive, da su mladi ljudi svjesni svoje pozicije i da im se omogući da daju svoj doprinos kulturi čiji su dio.

Nagrađeni video sa konkursa (Under)represented

Konkursom su se tražile nove i originalne teme u kojima kandidati predstavljaju svoj pogled na svijet, društvene pojave, probleme i teme od javnog interesa koje su uočili. Ključno je bilo da video-priča predoči novi aspekt, analizira stanje iz nove perspektive, otvori nova pitanja i finalno postavi određenu temu u žižu javnosti.

Proposals invited for the Next Funding Cycle by the National Endowment for Democracy Source – 20.01.2012

The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) is a private, nonprofit foundation dedicated to the growth and strengthening of democratic institutions around the world. Each year, NED makes more than 1,000 grants to support the projects of non-governmental groups abroad who are working for democratic goals in more than 90 countries.  Since its founding in 1983, the Endowment has remained on the leading edge of democratic struggles everywhere, while evolving into a multifaceted institution that is a hub of activity, resources and intellectual exchange for activists, practitioners and scholars of democracy the world over.

NED’s direct grants are aimed at providing financial support to hundreds of nongovernmental groups abroad working to ensure human rights, an independent media, the rule of law and to advance other democratic goals.

NED encourages applications for financial support from activist organizations in diverse situations, such as transitional countries where the goal is democratic consolidation, authoritarian countries where the goals are liberalization, and the protection of human rights.

In this context, NED is currently seeking grant proposals from eligible organizations to be considered during the next board meeting scheduled to be held on March 30, 2012.

Programs Eligible for Grants

NED is especially interested in proposals that originate with local democratic groups. It is also interested in nonpartisan programs seeking to strengthen democratic values. Note that the Endowment does not make grants to individuals.

Selection Procedure

NED Board of Directors meets every quarter for reviewing and evaluating the grant proposals. In addition to evaluating how a program fits within the Endowment’s overall priorities, the Board considers factors such as the urgency of a program, its relevance to specific needs and conditions in a particular country, and the democratic commitment and experience of the applicant.

Last date for submission of grant proposals for the next cycle is January 20, 2012
