The Serious Road Trip
Sometimes known as “the world’s most rock’n’roll aid organization”, The Serious Road Trip (TSRT) was founded in the United Kingdom in 1991, by volunteers from the UK and other countries. After first programs in Poland and Romania, the main activities shifted in 1992 to Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia. TSRT combined humanitarian emergency aid with circus and street art as a sort of therapeutic entertainment for war-affected populations, especially children. Their trucks and vehicles were painted bright yellow and decorated with oversized cartoon characters. Between 1992 and 1995, TSRT’s trucks delivered more than 3,000 tonnes of aid, mainly to areas isolated by the war, including Sarajevo, Mostar, Zenica and Tuzla. Members and supporters of TSRT also launched other initiatives, for example the project “Community Music Sarajevo” and the cooperation between Sarajevo and the Zooropa-tour of U2 in 1993.
