Do journalists attend your events less frequently than you would like them to?

Does it often happen that the media don’t publish your press releases?

Does your community have difficulty with using “like” and “share” on social networks?

Do people outside the civil sector often ask you what is it that you actually do?  

Do you find it difficult to explain to the citizens what services your organization provides?

If the answer to any of these questions is "YES" – then it's time for you to learn how to use  PRacka (a slingshot)! TASCO Resource Center of the Civic Initiatives, along with “Serbia on the Move”, as its implementation partner, organizes the “PRacka” (slingshot) conference for the second time this year.  The organizers of the conference were inspired by the story of David and Goliath and they wishes to draw attention to the fact that and wishes to draw attention to the fact that when we are faced with "major problems", it’s sufficient to have "small, but deadly weapon”.
