The Network of Culture Organization in Prizren (RrOK Prizren) is an informal network of cultural organizations in the Prizren municipality. The mission of this network is to achieve a developed local economy in Prizren through the enrichment and development of tourism, based on the increase of the quality and the number of cultural activities. EC Ma Ndryshe coordinates the Network’s Secretariat in collaboration with other member organizations and is involved in a structured dialogue with Prizren’s local government to foster the development of local cultural policies.
