The European character of this conference provides insight into the production and degree of influence of minority media throughout Europe on societies in which they create their content. The event is integrated into the “PLUS Interculturality Days”, project of Novi Sad 2021 European Capital of Culture, and one of the goals for this year is to promote Novi Sad and Vojvodina as a cultural destination using the potentials of their original multicultural environment, through active cooperation with minority media in both Serbia and Europe,” said Natasa Heror.
