The Forum of Slavic Cultures’ Living Villa cycle continues. Together with the Women Writers Route Association the FSK hosted the kick-off event of the 11th international seminar for translators of Slovenian literature, which is organised by the Slovenian Association of Literary Translators.
Forum of Slavic Cultures is aware of societal needs and promotes social responsibility. In line with their efforts towards sustainable development and circular economy they donated the furniture they no longer needed after moving to the new premises to Zavod Knof from Krško.
For the second time in a row, the FSK was a partner of the Slavic Garden programme at the Pula Book Fair. At the poetry evening entitled My Goal is – Horizon, which took place outdoors, visitors were able to listen to the poetry of five poets from the Slavic world in the dramatization and interpretation of the Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb.
Members of the Women Writers Route Association from seven countries met at the general meeting. They approved the Association’s bodies, took note of its previous activities and fundamental documents, and adopted the work programme for the next three-year period. Their first task is to prepare and submit the application for the certification Cultural Route of the Council of Europe.
President of the Board of the Forum of Slavic Cultures Maja Gojković, also the Vice-President of the Government of the Republic of Serbia and Minister of Culture and Information of the Republic of Serbia, paid her first official visit to the new headquarters of the International Foundation – Forum of Slavic Cultures. At the working meeting with FSK Director Andreja Rihter she emphasised the role of an institution such as the FSK and stressed the importance of further strengthening the joint promotion of the richness of Slavic cultures.
During their working visit to the Russian capital the visitors from the International Foundation Forum of Slavic Cultures met with their regular project partners as well as with Deputy Minister of Culture of the Russian Federation, Alla Manilova, and Yevgeny Primakov, Head of the Federal Agency Rossotrudnichestvo.
As part of this year’s Fabula Festival, the first public event, a literary evening with Ana Marwan, took place in the garden of Villa Zlatica. With this, the Forum of Slavic Cultures which is housed in Villa Zlatica, is joining Ljubljana venues for outdoor events.
The Centre of Slavic Cultures Moscow has traditionally organized the Festival of Slavic Cultures on the occasion of the Day of Slavic Literacy. This year it took place in hybrid form, partly live and partly remotely. The festival also included a round table dedicated to new Russian editions in the Hundred Slavic Novels collection.
Following the opening ceremony in Hribar’s Villa Zlatica, the Forum of Slavic Cultures invited ambassadors of Slavic countries in Ljubljana to visit its new home. So far, the villa has welcomed ambassadors from the Czech Republic, Croatia, Poland and Russia.
