The idea to “revive” (renovate) an old abandoned private house into the community center was born in the early 90s, during ex-Yugoslavia wars. As the house wore the stamp of tragic, the idea was to transform it, preserve it and open it for people again. It was meant to be a safe place to work, creation and gathering. The house was finally reconstructed and opened for public in 2008.
The House of Free Thought (Kuća slobodne misli) is a place, primarily for women, but also for men, children, groups of parents, groups of creators and all those who are willing to work on their emotional, psychological and spiritual development regardless their gender, national, religious and political affiliation. It is a place primarily designed for seminars, workshops, round table discussions, lectures, film projections, etc. Programmes could be conducted in a creative way in the house because it offers not only good conditions, but also quiet and isolated surroundings, which can guarantee dedicated work of all participants, as well as accommodation for the participants.
The House of Free Thought was initiated and is managed by NGO Anima. Future plans are to keep it a safe place to work, creation and gathering.
