Tiiiit! Inc.

Tiiiit! Inc. is a little flame of excitement shared by three girls from Skopje who want to enjoy the city they live in. Prvo pa Žensko (First Child Is a Girl) is their most precious brainchild and a unique (and one of a kind in Macedonia) festival with the goal of rethinking the meaning of 8th of March, the International Women’s Day, by placing it in a current context. By opening new space for creative expression, opportunities for networking and exchange of knowledge, the Festival creates a new space to question, rethink and advocate for the improvement of the position of women in our contemporary societies. They are driving through on their new project Intimate Maps of Female Cities - a radio show, broadcasted live from a moving car, set to happen in all Ex-Yugoslavian capitals. They have already mapped Skopje and Zagreb... Belgrade seems to be a great next stop.
