Better society in B&H and around the world, where young people use film and art for the sake of social justice.


Better society in B&H and around the world, where young people use film and art for the sake of social justice.


Magacin Kabare is the first organization in Bosnia and Herzegovina which promotes reconciliation and the sense of social responsibility through the creative engagement of agents of change in B&H who use art as a means of fighting for a better future of their communities and the whole country.
Magacin Kabare is a non-profit professional organization established in 2010 in Sarajevo by a group of young, established and emerging local professionals from the field of creative industries, with the aim of creating and producing multimedia projects, independently and in cooperation with the B&H, regional, and international art professionals.


Through stand-up comedy, theatre and cabaret performances, TV/web series, music videos and documentary films, this group of professional artists examines current social issues in a provocative, innovative and incisive way, and using these means sets the standards for activism through various forms of art.  The movies we made through our projects are shown at festivals, schools, and
universities worldwide and they are part of the Political Science department program at several universities in the USA.


We made more than 30 original shows within Late Night Cabaret Show.

More than 20.000 people attended Late Night Cabaret Show.

Apart from performing at our main stage Club Gogo, we were also guest artists at more than 20 different locations in B&H and abroad. More than 350 children of different age attended Mali Magacin Kabare’s Art Lab for Creative Thinking. In cooperation with them, we filmed more than 20 short films and documentary films.

We have completed more than 20 projects which were supported by various donors, government institutions in B&H, foreign embassies and organizations. We filmed 3 feature-length documentaries which were screened at various film festivals and universities around the world, from the USA to Iran.
