Cultural Park "Ali Podrimja"


Funding for this Campaign ended on 2017-05-13


Raised out of 10780.00€




Days Remaining


An open-air Cultural Park where cinematography, and other visual arts can be displayed, with space for expression from young talents.


Gjakova is a city located in the southeastern part of Kosovo, with approximately 120.000 citizens. After the war of 1999, many things changed, making no exception for the economic and cultural aspects, which suffered considerably.

Except the activities organized time by time from the Palace of Culture, there is lack of constant events in culture, with cinematography being obsolete for many years.

The interest and talent are not missing though. What is missing is an alternative scene where these talents and interest can be expressed, letting the only way for entertainment and socializing for youth in Gjakova be in coffee bars and restaurants.


This project is based as a non-profit project, with a goal in creating a non-formal cultural park where movies and documentaries can be displayed, musical and theatrical shows can be organized, not letting aside events in literature and drawing.

Cultural education throughout the above mentioned activities, by enabling young artists in cinematography, music, arts and drawing, and other artistic disciplines to express their talents and skills, with a long-term plan for the functioning of Cultural Park “Ali Podrimja” starting with at least a three-year long plan which supports art and culture are our main goals.

We consider this project important because except revitalizing the cinematography and culture, we want to improve the social life of our co-citizens, especially those in need as we are collaborating with different organizations, to dedicate for them the entry fees.

The support from the Municipality of Gjakova is essential until now, providing us with the space where this cultural park will be established, the “Ali Podrimja” square in Gjakove, with a location near the Education Directorate in Gjakove, close to the musical school “Prenk Jakova”, easily reachable by walking from anywhere in the city.


This project is ideated from us three, Ednor, Arber and Jetmir. But it is not only us three, taking in consideration the huge support from the entire community hungry to perform, or be a spectator to performances.

The cultural park is all going to be developed in cooperation with GjakovaBasel NGO, under a memorandum of understanding which states that all assets and copyright material will be under the ownership of GjakovaBasel, until we have our own NGO structure.


The donation we are seeking with this campaign from you will give us the opportunity to purchase the technical equipment for our cultural park (a video projector with high quality, audio devices, and a laptop), building the screen, comforting the seats and borrowing of the movies or the realization of the program.

We plan on being financially sustainable for the upcoming years (three years at least). This because we do not need to buy more technical equipment, and we will use our income from the park to fix the equipment, buy what is needed and maintain everything.

Our income will be made from two main sources, the first being the income from the shop that will be located inside the Cultural Park “Ali Podrimja”, and the second from the income generated from private sector and businesses who wants to promote their brand or products inside our cultural park (an income which will help us considerably for the fund of realizing the cultural program in the upcoming years).

In case we do not achieve in reaching our requested amount, we have a plan B in case we gather less funds. We plan on leasing the technical equipment, and shorten down the period of time which this cultural park will operate, flexible to the exact support gathered from all the contributors on this campaign.

Urime! Një nevojë e madhe, njerëzit e duhur, në vendin e bukur dhe një komunitet në rritje. Ideja për parkun kulturor "Ali Podrimja" duhet te jetë frymëzim për shumë projekte të tjera kulturore në të gjithë Kosovën.

Die Idee des Kulturparks sollte eine Inspiration für viele weitere Kulturprojekte im Kosovo sein.

Kinemaja e shfaqjet kulturore jane socializim. Mosfunksionimi i kinemase per shume vite ne qytetin e Gjakoves bene qe te kontriboj per kete kampanje.
