Rapid Response Grants – Urgent Action Fund

Approved – July 2014.

Number of grants: 1

1. Dah Theatre, Belgrade

  • RSD: 147.000,00
  • Name of the project: Action to save the working space
  • Context: DAH Theatre got the space to use in one school, since 2003. In agreement with the school, they are paying the monthly rent, utilities, and electricity costs that the school arbitrarily determined. School is constantly looking for an excuse to kick out the group from the space, because, on one hand, they want that space for the activities that bring them commercial financial gain, on the other hand, because they do not agree with Dah politics and activism.  Lately, the pressure became stronger, especially an economic pressure, which refers to excessive lump electricity costs. Grant is urgently needed to prevent closing the space, turning off electricity and stopping the activities, and to afford the time necessary to prepare and launch a campaign for a more permanent solution to this problem with working space.
