Stories from Mostar series

Stories from Mostar is a multimedia storytelling course where MSYP youth collaborate in diverse forms of media to share the narratives of their communities. Students produced multimedia stories using mediums such as documentary photography, film, narrative text and audio recordings. MSYP students explored stories ranging from street art in Mostar to documenting memories of the war.


“There are many sad stories about people in Mostar, and they should be told, but sometimes we forget how many beautiful people surround us. There are plenty of stories about friendship and love that overcome all the negative effects the war brought us. I think it is important to tell the story about the changes in Mostar that happened after the war, all changes- the good and the bad.”
