‘Roar of women’s silence’ brings art and feminism at the EUICC

At the European Union Information and Cultural Centre premises in Pristina last night the exhibition ‘Roar of women’s silence’ opened up to celebrate women promoting arts and culture in Kosovo.

December at the EUICC will celebrate these women who are giving their maximum energy towards promoting art and culture and the cultural diplomacy. Vjosa Berisha, team leader at the EUICC gave opening remarks by stating that European Union is very much committed to support the promotion of the cultural scene in Kosovo.



“Together with Shqipe we are collaborating for the second time, because we have a common inspiration: women construct. I hope tonight everyone will understand the meaning of my art: we are saying no to domestic violence, violence against women. This society should understand that women should have a better position overall, for a healthy family institution” said Mjellma Goranci Firzi during the opening of the exhibition.


Mjellma is always experimenting and her painting is unique achieved by combining her media and a range of unusual materials.

Shqipe, on the other side, said that we all live in a patriarchal society and therefore we have to try and convey the message of peace and love towards women.

The same exhibition has previously traveled around Europe, having reached Germany, The Netherlands, Austria and Bulgaria.


The exhibition will be stay put at the EUICC until the end of the month.

Today, starting from 19:00 at the EUICC in Pristina we will screen “Ajo” by famous director More Raça, with a discussion following afterwards. On Wednesday, 5th of December, starting from 16:00 a panel discussion will bring up Besa Luzha, Vjosa Berisha, Nita Deda, Arta Agani, Zana Hoxha Krasniqi and Donika Rudi – all directors of prestigious festivals in Kosovo, to discuss women as agents of cultural diplomacy.
