Inviting. Inclusive. Stimulating.

THINKtent is arriving in Belgrade – after inspiring appearances at the iconic
Sydney Opera House and the notorious Museum of Old + New Art in Tasmania.

THINKtent will be performed on THURSDAY 3 JULY from 12:00 – 18:00 in the stunningly beautiful modern space of the Čolaković Legacy, Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade – Rodoljuba Čolakovića 2, Dedinje.

THINKtent is a travelling tent that provides an intimate, beautiful and safe space for people to come together for conversation and reflection.

THINKtent allows people to slow down and exchange views and ideas – away from the relentless distractions of smartphones and social media.

THINKtent generates dialogue and playful exchange – not lectures or strict instruction. It takes conversation to the people.

THINKtent is global and local. It treads lightly, and floats across borders.

THINKtent welcomes.


THINKtent is the brainchild of strategist and thought leader Natasha Cica. Born in Australia and of Balkan origin, Natasha recently was recognised as one of Australia’s 100 Women of Influence by the Australian Financial Review and Westpac banking group.

THINKtent is a portable 4 x 4 metre canvas belltent. In each location THINKtent appears, the interior is curated to reflect and express distinctive qualities of a specific place and its people.


In Serbia, THINKtent is curated by PROTOTYPE – interior architect Milivoje Stojanović, with Miroslav and Jasna Stojanović. It’s a wonderful blend of old and new, dark and light, east and west.

THINKtent in Belgrade is delivered by Liminal Strategy in partnership with Belgrade Design Week.

It enjoys the support of the Australian Embassy in Belgrade – featuring key speakers and participants from the recent Inglis Clark Circle global program for young leaders.


THINKtent places are limited to ten people per session, and reservation is essential.

Each session runs for one hour, exploring a programmed topic and featuring high profile experts in their field.

Natasha Cica facilitates the sessions, taking handwritten notes and still photographs for future publication. No recording or phones are allowed – but books, poems and other cultural artefacts are welcome.

During Belgrade Design Week 2009, you enabled participants to meet with representatives from different countries, in professional, as well a sin social settings, which provided the opportunity for spontaneous interactions, where everyone was engaged in true cross-cultural dialogues. This allowed participants from different countries to become familiar with attitudes, ideas, and practices on the common topics of design.   We had received first hand accounts of current situation in creative fields and intellectual status of Belgrade Design Week, exchanged ideas and knowledge, mixed and mingled among each other. And the unique opportunity was given for all of us to establish professional relationships and develop lifelong friendships. We were eager to discover Belgrade and had a unique chance to enjoy the city! No doubt, it was our first, but not our last visit to Belgrade. All the best to Belgrade Design Week for the future to come! We are looking forward to be a part of your success
