Within the project Creativity for All, from November to March, ten workshops have been held in two locations, in Niš, Serbia and Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina. There were over 300 participants at the Evenings of creativity with the creative industry’s topics in those two towns.The first who had an honor this series of events in Nis was the architect Hajji Ivan Redi. Our dear guest, who likes to say that Deli is a space that connects, told young people his story. Mr.Redi's life was, and still is very interesting began his story with his schooling and first love, which was an architecture. Two hours of storytelling was not enough, and the participants, mostly architecture students, were eager for the story, took the opportunity to approach Hajji Redi after the lecture to ask him questions. Two weeks later, Katarina Popović aka Kata Data held a workshop on presentation skills and successful storytelling in the Deli space. During the introductory lecture, the participants had the opportunity to listen to the importance ofpublic speaking, pitch preparation, as well as the techniques how to get over the stage fright. After the theoretical part, teams were formed. Each team applied Sorytelling skills to present their final ideas insimulated pitching. A week later, a resident of Deli Space, Đorđe Radošević, spoke about the workshop at the Third Evening of Creativity, and talked about photography after the Unsplash platform. The lecture was of an interactive type. Together with our guests from the field of photography, design and programming, Đorđe discussed the use of free photos for commercial purposes, and analyzed all that awaits us in this sphere of the creative industries in the future. For the very end of the year, Svetozar Kolesar Rare, Prime Minister of the 3D Republic, hosted theworkshop "3D for every day". Participants in this workshop were of various professions, from graphic designers, developers to makersand those who came to this Evening of Creativity to learn more about 3D printing technology. A handful of questions marked the first segment of the workshop, while the second one featured 3D printing materials and samples. Our #supercool Ulitimaker Peaksel 3D printer took care of the whole experience and participants wereable to see the process of creating a single 3D object throughout the evening. The message through graphic design was the event that opened the Creativity Evening in Tuzla, and Dado Babović spoke at BRDO coworking space. Why graphic design relies on message and how it communicates with observers is revealed to youngvisitors coming from the industry or planning to go graphic design.

A similar theme was held by Belgrade graphic designer Jelena Jaćimović aka Jachim992 a few days later in the Deli space.Through her work, visitors who came from the design and the civil sector, Jelena showed the necessityof visual communication in activism. Although this is not apparent at first glance, our lecturer said that there are more and more interested young designers and illustrators for an activist approach, and above all to work pro bono if it is an idea they believe in. In the first week of February, Munever Slihović spoke about the nature and society in the eye of the photographer. Two hours were short for young photographers and those who wanted to become tohear about Salihović experience and advices on how to tell the pohoto story of a human and what surrounds him. There is creativity in the countryside and people from the creative industries are moving to rural areas inthe world. Jasminka Husanović, EU LEADER program coach, has found a connection. Visitors from both urban and rural settlements in the vicinity of Tuzla listened to the possibilities of ruraldevelopment, without focusing only on agriculture. During the state of emergency, Nikola Jovanović held the last, tenth night of creativity through lecture platforms. Participants had the opportunity to learn more about market research and public opinion. As the creative industries use modern technologies, it is very important to use them, but also to present sometimes tedious statistics in a creative way.
