Find out how Belgrade community partners and participants have been stepping up to lead their own projects

For an industry built around shared, live experiences, 2020 has been particularly tough. Yet in many ways, here at the Belgrade, we’ve responded to lockdown in the same way as we would to any other challenge: by collaborating with our communities and supporting people both within and outside the organisation to develop their own creative solutions.

Despite the obvious difficulties we’ve faced, lockdown has also presented opportunities to learn and experiment, both for Belgrade staff, and for the people we have worked with. Over the course of this year, we’ve been proud to see some of our participants and community partners step up into leadership positions as we’ve helped them to realise their own creative ideas.

Read on for a look at some of the brilliant projects they developed on their own initiative, with help and guidance from our team.
