Before I have to go into town is collaborative project in which I was working with 17 citizens of Dubrovnik. All participants showed up on Stradun (the main street in the Old Town of Dubrovnik) in T-shirts with personalized texts, mingled with tourists and walked up and down the streets for two hours. The texts were telling us something about personal attitudes of participants towards the city, its past, mass tourism which has for the most part displaced normal life from the old town (many people have moved out), possible alternatives to it etc. The texts were based on answers participants gave in questionnaire during the preparation phase for the project.

Prije nego imam poć’ u Grad je participativni projekt u kojem sam surađivala sa 17 stanovnika Dubrovnika. Svi sudionici pojavili su se na Stradunu u majicama s personaliziranim tekstovima, pomiješali se s turistima i šetali ulicama grada dva sata. Tekstovi su govorili o osobnim stavovima sudionika prema gradu, njegovoj prošlosti, masovnom turizmu koji je velikim dijelom protjerao normalan život iz starog grada (mnogo ljudi se odselilo), o mogućim alternativama itd. Tekstovi su nastali na temelju odgovora koje su sudionici dali u upitniku tijekom pripremne faze projekta.
