The international foundation Forum of Slavic Cultures has more than 1200 partners, including many institutions from Serbia. FSK Director, Dr. Andreja Rihter, visited some of them during her recent working visit to Serbia.
Arhipelag publishing house and the National Library of Serbia have been our partners in the area of publishing and literature for a number of years. The latter has been the home of the Centre of Slavic Cultures Belgrade since 2018. In the frame of her working visit to Serbia Ms Rihter met with Vladimir Pištalo, the new director of the National Library, publisher Gojko Božović and representatives of the Ministry of Culture and Information of the Republic of Serbia, who participate in the One hundred Slavic Novels project. Among other things they discussed the celebration of the collection’s 15th anniversary in Serbia and other events taking place at the Centre of Slavic Cultures Belgrade.
Ms Rihter met with directors of several heritage institutions as well, including Tijana Palkovljević Bugarski, Director of Matica Srpska Gallery, Neda Knežević, Director of the Museum of Yugoslavia, and president of the panel of judges for the Živa Award and Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Marijana Kolarić. She discussed FSK’s further cooperation with the State Archives of Serbia and Archives of Yugoslavia with the institutions’ directors Miroslav Perišić and Milan Terzić.
After a working meeting in Novi Sad with Aleksandar Petrović, Deputy Mayor, and Dalibor Rožić, member of the City Council for culture, the FSK is looking forward to a new partnership with the city of Novi Sad, namely in the framework of the association WWR – Women Writers Route, and in 2022 in the framework of the European Capital of Culture.
