min read


Ferizaj-based TV Tema broadcasted the first episode of documentary series ‘Discovering Dardania’ on 24 July. This episode is about 6th edition of the ‘Mural Fest’, hosted in Ferizaj, which is becoming a venue for international artists. This year’s edition began on June 12 and involved the creation of five new murals under the thematic “Home”, portraying the exodus of the civilian population from Kosovo during the war in 1999. 

"This is the first traditional festival of murals in Kosovo, which was established in 2016, by artists Lebibe Topalli and Pranvera Sylejmani. Event attracts local Kosovar and international artists to visit Ferizaj and embed their artistic signature on the walls of the city buildings.  First episode covers the work of the international artists: Slim Safont, Zabou, Pablo Astrain, Guido Palmadessa, Vicente Macellari, and Mateu Targa, and it highlights their vision of “Home” and their impressions of the visit to Kosovo",
