A festival for bums on Christmas Eve under the bridge overlooking Sava river in Zagreb. With burning barrels and flaming wine. Street poets without any rhyme. This event was held consecutively for 2 years (2008./09.) and gathered a humble amount of artists and bums. It was my first test in organizing an event so I had to find abandoned furniture to make a bum living room in the open. I was so focused with the project that I even stole 2 barrels from a local garden and had to roll them towards the bridge for 2km during the night. Also made a fanzine and a promo video so I had my first shot in video editing, graphic design, writing short stories and event coordination. In the end I can say it really payed off in a major personal way since I learn through direct experience. And what a better way there is to find what you can do in life then to make a bum festival?
