ART Channel Television, a Macedonian TV channel, showed a - very long - feature on our project in Tetovë, Tetovo, Macedonia They interviewed many (almost everybody) of our volunteers. Have a look to get a complete picture of what we've been up to in Macedonia!

Macedonia, here we come!
The tradition continues! Just like last year and the two years before, Toestand broadens its horizons during the month of July. This year the international adventure leads to Tetova, a small city in the northwestern part of Macedonia. Together with our local partner Democracy Lab, we will transform an abandoned building into a socio-cultural space. The specific building is not yet decided but we have some great options and the negotiations with the municipality are going well. We hope to have a final answer within some days.
On Leegstond and it’s warm welcome.
Slowly but surely, ‘May 8th’ became a circled date in our mental agenda. Our expectations built and we started picturing the evening. We imagined the book, the location, the attendees, the speeches… Sometimes our expectations were clear, sometimes they were cloudy. But not in our wildest dreams could we imagine that our manual would receive such a warm welcome. Thank you for your presence!
Have a look at the pictures made by Willy Dirkx. Did you make pictures/video’s yourself? Please share them with us through this shared album.
