Three-day POP-UP! Sarajevo is an international student visual communications and graphics design festival initiated by the Department of graphics design of the Sarajevo Academy of Fine Arts.

This year’s fifth edition of the festival will gather local, regional and international artists, designers, illustrators and creative individuals, as well as students of the Sarajevo Academy of Fine Arts and a number of universities in the region.

POP-UP! Sarajevo 2019 features lectures, workshops, PechaKucha Nights and exhibitions.

PechaKucha is a presentation style in which participants have an opportunity to present themselves and their work with 20 slides, which are shown for 20 seconds each. The format, which keeps presentations concise and fast-paced, powers multiple-speaker events called PechaKucha Nights.

All festival events are open for public, except workshops, which will be available to registered participants.
