Highlighting the most interesting events from the rich program of the Youth Center for March is not easy, but we'll try. In the first week of March, don't miss the play "Sunset is the End" by PlayDrama theater, scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, March 5th and 6th, at 8:00 PM in the Amphitheater. The cast includes Laura Bošnjak, Filip Luka Gospić, and Vid Ćosić, directed by Kristina Grubiša, with Karla Leko as the dramaturge.

On Wednesday, March 6th, starting at 6:30 PM in the Razred, as part of the Krovna tema (Roof Topic program), Gorana Barišić Bačelić, the director of the Šibenik Fortress Culture, will discuss how Šibenik became the cultural center of Dalmatia and an example of good practices in promoting cultural values and opportunities, while also addressing potential challenges, problems, and opportunities they encountered on that journey.

The weekend of March 9th and 10th offers several workshops where you can learn new skills or enhance existing knowledge. The Beginner's Rope Workshop is designed for adults (16+) without previous experience, but those with experience in aerial disciplines can also participate with a specially prepared program. The workshop will be led by b from the Circus Collective.

The "Body as Sound, Sound as Body" workshop explores the relationship between sound and movement through a series of improvisational tasks based on basic musical elements such as rhythm, melody, and harmony. The workshop is intended for participants with dance background (regardless of dance type) and will take place on Saturday and Sunday, March 9th and 10th. The teacher is Nastasja Štefanić Kralj, a dance artist, musician, and dance and music educator.

On Sunday, March 10th, there is also the "Awareness and Movement: Flow and Upper Body Centers" workshop, focusing on the awareness of energy flow through the body in motion. The workshop continues from the previous one in Cycle 4 and will explore and open up energetic movement from the upper two centers: the head and the heart. The teacher is Nataša Pavlov.

Why it is important to involve young people in decision-making processes, whether the Youth Councils Act is unconstitutional, and what alternative models of youth involvement are, are just some of the topics of discussion.
