About: ‘Artivist Stafetë Project’ aims to improve the environment for active citizenship and civic participation by providing CSOs with tools to grant marginalised groups and side-lined voices in Albania with cultural instruments, empowering each participant to use artivism as a driver for change. The project works with key actors and grassroots initiatives in the civil society sector in Albania granting participating organisations with capacity building tools in the arts (artivism, film, podcast and community art through Walls of Connection) with which to empower individuals to become active actors and agents for social change through participation in policy shaping and decision making at a local, national and EU level. The project works provides financial assistance to over 40 local civil society organisations through sub-granting schemes in Tirana, Durres, Korca, Elbasan, Pogradec, Berat and Dibra and it provided 95 mini-grants to individual filmmakers, storytellers and podcast makers to realise their artistic productions on human rights/LGBTi rights and active citizenship.
