 There will also be interviews with the famous rock photographer Brajan Rašić, historian Dubravka Stojanović and actor and writer from Sarajevo, Feđa Štukan.

The daytime programme in the Kids, Debate, and Chill Out zones are geared towards children ages 2 to 14 and will feature various workshops led by the renowned children’s writer Jasminka Petrović, Desa Muck from Slovenia, Merce Gali from Spain, Arianna Papini from Italy, Cirkusfera, Marina Čabrilo, Svetozar Stevin from Novi Sad and Marija Trkulja.
