Artlink Gala Dinner at the White Palace

The BSCC had the pleasure to partner up once again with the ArtLink Association of artists to organise a Gala dinner which was held on Saturday, October 2nd at the White Palace in Belgrade and had a humanitarian character.

The occasion was celebrating the successful festival of young talents “Cities and Artists for Nature”, which was organised in cooperation between the HRH Crown Prince Alexander’s Foundation for Education and Culture and the Art Link Association.

The BSCC would like to especially thank HRH Crown Prince Alexander Karadjordjevic and HRH Crown Princess Katherine Karadjordjevic for opening the doors of their wonderful home for this occasion.

The Gala was attended by 100 guests including H.E Carlos Isauro Félix Corona, Mexican Ambassador to Serbia and H.E Rafal Perl, Polish Ambassador to Serbia, Secretary General of the European Festival Association Kathrin Deventer and representatives of the European Platform Festival cities Robert Piaskowski, Deputy Mayor of Krakow and  Giacomo Pedini, Director of Mitelfest together with the BSCC Board Director Mišo Božić with his Delamode Balkans team, Robert Čoban from Colormedia Communications, Danica Stević from Ninamedia and our individual member Branka Margan.

The event began with the reception, followed by a concert performed by young musicians: Marija Radovanović - violine, Nina Petrović - piano, Strahinja Radojičić - flute, Nemanja Adamović - viola, and Irina Pejoska - harp. In the meantime, beautiful art created by talented artists: Marija Zdravković, Una Novosel, Budimir Dimitrijević, Bratislav Radovanović, Ivana Martić, Mario Điković and Jakša Vlahović was displayed in the gallery. A wonderful dinner was prepared for guests by Hyatt Regency and provided by the general sponsor of the night - Zepter International, which also provided special gifts for all guests. Attendees also enjoyed the amazing vine from TemeT winery. To finalise the evening, another short concert was performed by Andrea Nikolić - flute, Jana Janićijević - flute and Nina Petrović - piano.

Since this was the first cooperation between ArtLink Association and the Crown Prince Alexander’s Foundation, HRH Crown Prince Alexander stated: “I am extremely glad that the cooperation between my Foundation for Education and Culture and the Art Link Association of Young Artists has begun, and I sincerely believe that this is only the first step in our future joint work, which I am certain will be long and extremely successful. Every kind of support for young people is always welcome and much needed. With its perennial work, my Foundation preserves the tradition of my ancestors and carries my personal vision - to provide quality education for the youth of Serbia to achieve personal development, successful career, and personal fulfilment.”

We would also like to thank our members Colormedia Communications, G4S and G3 Spirits for helping with the organisation, as well as Nest VIA Team who ensured everything went well with utmost professionalism.

We have always been committed to supporting young talent and charity causes. Thus we hope that soon we will have yet another opportunity to do so.
