Hi everyone,

We are Nenad and Jelena, to some of you maybe known as NS Acrobalance or the serbian giants :D

For years now we have been talking about a shared dream the two of us have, about making a place in Serbia where likeminded people can come and play and share their knowledge, a place the two of us didn't have in our acro journey. A place where we could grow old and then become the two geezers who go and bother all the young acrobats around them with stories from their yound days :D

A few months ago, in October 2022 to be more precise, we were lucky enough to become owners of great piece of land where we decided we were gonna plant our dream and thus SAFT land has been born.

If you are wondering what the hell SAFT is, let me make a bit more clear. SAFT stands for Serbian Acrobatic Festival Thing, the "thing" was added there just to make a bit more awesome. Our mantra is "Super Awesome Fun Times" and our plan is to make it epic!

Well, if we want to make a epic festival first we need to make the home of it as epic as possible. And this is where your help would mean a lot.

The land and buildings on it that we got, as pretty as they are, are not in the best shapes of their lives, not to mention that we are currently lacking the infrastructure that could accommodate a group of talented and hardworking acrobats.

So, lets make a list of what exist on SAFT land and what needs to be done to make it work:

- the land itself is quite big, a bit more that 6000sqm or a certain amount of sq feet that Google knows better than us :D We have successfully cleaned up more than half of it, but you know how it is with plants, they just wanna keep on growing, and we wanna make as much of a botanical heaven for barefoot monkeys to dwell on as we can

- we have a semi-finished house that is around 190sqm that needs a lot of love and care, and it would be nice if it had a functional bathroom. Some of the work that needs to be done on the house is: finishing the plumbing and electricity, finishing the floors, furbishing it fully, checking the roof, building a staircase for the attic, transforming the attic into shared dorm/ space to train.

- there are two unfinished sheds that we plan to turn into a festival kitchen and workshop for Nenad. We have successfully redone the roofs on them and the workshop is almost complete :)

- the GYM! Well for now there is none xD But we have started working on the foundations and slowly but surely it will get there. Our plan is to build it in 2 phases with the first one being making an 200sqm open training space with a mono pitch roof going from 8m to 6m height (we are giants after all)

- festival bathrooms, yup they are quite necessary we can all agree on that. We are lucky enough to have our own water well so now we just need everything else around it

- YES, THERE IS A SAUNA! One of the first thing we build was a sauna. Why you would ask. Well, not quite sure on that :D

- an open air cinema, still not existing but imagine snuggling with your felow awesome humans under the stars while watching your favourite movie, or a festival party with a karaoke wall

- aerial paradise, again one of the not yet realised plans, but there is a huge walnut tree that is just begging to be turned into a aerial paradise

- swimming pool, the place for great ideas. Our plan is to make it close to the house so we could make a slide going from the balcony in it, or just jump from the balcony (at your own risk of course)

- slip n' slide, every great festival has to have a slip n' slide

- fire pit, for some chill nights and music jams

- murals on the house, outdoor art pieces - if you wanna share your art with us we would be super thrilled to make it happen

- chicken coop, all good festivals need to have chickens on them

And the list could go on forever :D


So even though we are super motivated and we spend every free second we have making our dream closer to reality, we could use a bit of help :)
We hope that once its start living SAFT land will continue its life even without us and hopefully become a home for some future acrobats.

And if you would like to help a bit more directly, we would love to host you in exchange for some digging :D

Feel free to contact us on any time!
