About Nova Iskra

The Nova Iskra design incubator is Southeast Europe’s first design hub, a multidisciplinary platform with a focus on innovation, collaboration and creative solutions in the fields of design, architecture, education and social enterprise with a particular emphasis on newly established professionals.

Nova Iskra will rent an apartment in central Belgrade for the grant holder. A workplace at Nova Iskra is included in the residency, but if the stipendiaries require workshop space or similar they must discuss this with Nova Iskra in advance.
