It was exactly one hundred years ago, in 1922, that Croatian novelist, playwright and poet Miroslav Krleža wrote the second part of his Glembay trilogy – In agony. The wounds of World War I had not yet healed and the old social orders were crumbling. A hundred years later we find ourselves in a similar predicament: fundamental social structures are changing irreversibly as age-old existential questions remain equally relevant.
The Forum of Slavic Cultures, in cooperation with partners, organised the Festival of Slavic Literatures. The first edition of the Festival, which will become a regular literary event on the cultural calendar in the years to come, was dedicated to the 15th anniversary of the 100 Slavic Novels collection. The anniversary was held under the honourable patronage of the President of the Republic of Slovenia, Borut Pahor.
The 14th edition of the International Summer School of Museology took place between 5 and 9 September 2022 at the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Primorska. The programme was a collaboration of the Forum of Slavic Cultures, UNESCO Chair and the Department of Archaeology and Heritage of the FH UP, ICOM Slovenia, in partnership with Regional Museum Koper and cultural centre Delavski Dom Trbovlje.
With the aim of enriching the programme activities in Villa Zlatica and developing new audiences, the Forum of Slavic Cultures has teamed up with the Ljubljana Puppet Theatre. The theatre presented itself for the first time in the garden of the Villa Ivan Hribar, the former Mayor of Ljubljana, with two sold-out performances of Sapramouse.
