Opera Circus, a performing arts organisations in the UK worked with Changing the Story with a small project in Bosnia and Herzegovina called Izazov! (provocation/challenge). 4 films were made by 5 young people from BiH, UK and Italy which expressed their concerns about their lives, their families and their future. None of them were trained in the making of documentary films. Robert Golden professional photographer and film maker mentored the process which was researched by 3 academics from Kings College London and Sarajevo School of Science and Technology. CtS was led by Leeds University UK.

Izazov is a Changing the Story Phase 2 ECR project which aims to build the capacity of young change-makers in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) to further connect with youth civil society networks and to engage Bosnian youth in inclusive civil society activities.

In 2019, Changing the Story (CTS) launched a Mobility Fund, offering financial support of up to £1000 designed to enhance the mobility and professional development of CTS grantees based in the 13 project countries (researchers, practitioners and youth partners). The fund has proven hugely popular, providing excellent networking, knowledge exchange and additional research dissemination opportunities, beyond what grantees originally envisaged at the project application stage. This reports captures some of the opportunities and experiences made possible by the fund, which remains open until June 2021.

Hana Hasanefendić introduces the film which is a youthful, rebellious and cynical critique of B&H’s national mentality. From the very beginning the film criticizes the way our youthful generations were raised. The film ridicules the way generations have been raised in the country, however sincerely questions the outcomes of having a careless, and corrupted nation. Although the film begins as a critique, it ends with an open question left to be interpreted by every young individual in the country. Every generation has their own share of time, but one day our time will come, too!
