The municipal cultural institution BELEF Center is now located at Ilije Garašanina 24
The Belgrade cultural institution, BELEF Center, recently relocated to a new home in the city. The relocation marks a shift in providing cultural services to the citizens of Belgrade, and an expansion in the types of services offered.
Since first opening its doors in 2011, BELEF Center established itself as a beacon for art and culture within Belgrade, a place for citizens to come together and appreciate the fine works of art gratis. In order to reach a greater number of citizens and to further expand the scope of its mission, the municipality decided to move BELEF Center from its former location to Ilije Garašanina 24. This strategic shift promises to provide a much larger space for cultural events and exhibitions, as well as increasing access for locals and visitors alike.
The BELEF Center’s new home is a three-story building. Inside, visitors will find an amazing array of works on display throughout all three floors: paintings, sculptures, photographs, installations, and more provided by both emerging and acclaimed contemporary artists. Additionally, educational activities are held regularly with exhibiting artists offering workshops, lectures, classes and guided visits.
As part of the expansion, there is now more than just visual arts on offer at the center; musical performances have also been added to the list. Rising stars in various genres make regular appearances at nearby stages, as well as hosting open mic nights so that budding musicians may showcase their skills.
Most importantly, this move has allowed more people to access art directly within their own community; something that plays an essential role in creating the next generation of creatives across Serbia. As such, the BELEF Center’s relocation is certainly something worth cheering about!
The BELEF Center, Belgrade’s cultural institution, has now been relocated to Ilije Garašanina 24, giving residents of the city an even larger platform to experience the city’s vibrant cultural offerings.
This new space will be the home for both entertainment activities and educational events. It is aiming to provide Belgrade with a broad range of cultural topics, from film screenings and exhibitions to concerts and theatrical performances. This newly refurbished space will provide locals with a great opportunity to not just experience their own culture but also that of other regions and countries around the world.
The organization’s top priority is the promotion of socially responsible art and culture, thus targeting all age ranges from students to senior citizens. The goal is to keep people engaged in active cultural dialogue through workshops, seminars and even mentoring programs.
Furthermore, the venue has also hosted many international artists over the years, such as theatre directors Wim Wenders and Andrey Zvyagintsev. As such, this shows us how this institution already works as an effective platform for cultural discourse throughout different parts of the world. Furthermore, it will allow another generation of emerging artists to express themselves in a safe and welcoming space while giving the audience an insight into new cultures and ideas.
Overall, the relocation of BELEF Center to Ilije Garašanina 24 will be a welcome asset to Belgrade’s cultural landscape, providing citizens with even more opportunities to experience and engage in the city’s diverse range of art festivals, art exhibitions, talks and educational programs.
