MELEEM Skopje is an organization that tends to identify, point out and reanimate essential public spaces that are forgotten by the citizens or the authorities.
Our activities are based on a concept that prioritizes the inclusion of the community during the “making of” process. We believe that the process is equally, or even more important, than the result itself since it provides learning and bonding of the community.
Our goal is to address vital topics through our activities while respecting the concepts of:
#community inclusion #youth activism #participative design #sustainability
in each of the projects.
MELEEM realizes its goals by 3 main activities:
art installations, and
We are also interested in the online publication and extending the online database about spaces of importance for the city, that can bring in new energy and further city development. We want to deliver valuable content to a larger portion of the population through digital tools.
The organization was founded in 2013 in Skopje, Macedonia and has been actively involved in youth activism and community inclusion ever since. The team consists of people with different backgrounds (architects, economist, cultural worker) that join their skills to improve the neighborhood’s vitality and bring in positive vibrant energy.
