I have to admit, even though I was very much looking forward to be travelling to Sarajevo on behalf of the IYMA network, I was also a little bit anxious. It was my job this festival to represent the network and to meet new people. Before I went, I didn’t really have that much time to read about Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and the festival. So, I would just let it all happen to me.

The world is in a MESS
Alright, so I just had my first weekend at the MESS Festival and I have been so busy with taking in as many performances, side programs, encounters and sightseeings as I could, that I can only now begin to write about my experiences (whilst having a coffee at Park Princeva, restaurant with a great view! Go there).
I’ll be writing a personal blog about my experiences at MESS Festival, here in Sarajevo. In this blog I will tell you about the performances I see, the people I meet and the things I notice. But first… let me tell you a little bit about myself and why I am here.
