The call for the 9th Živa Award once again received a strong response from the Slavic world, with a remarkable 24 museums from 10 countries applying for this prestigious award. This year’s call received a record number of candidates from Ukraine (7).
During a working meeting held at Villa Zlatica, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Culture of the Republic of Serbia, as well as the President of the FSK Board, Maja Gojković, and the Director of the Forum of Slavic Cultures, Andreja Rihter, engaged in a productive discussion on the importance of implementing the FSK program designed to promote the rich cultural heritage of the Slavic countries.
This year’s edition of the international four-day colloquium Piranova featured experts from Slovenia, Slovakia, Serbia, Croatia, Poland, North Macedonia and Ukraine who explored good practices in digital technologies that facilitate museums in creating a participatory and inclusive museum experience.
The One Hundred Slavic Novels collection is nearing its destination – one hundred translations in seven countries. The most recent in the series is the Slovenian translation of Macedonian author Aleksandar Prokopiev’s novel Špegavec (Voyeur), the 96th title in the collection, translated by Robert Suša.
ICARUS Croatia Days saw its eighth edition this year and the FSK was there, like in previous years. This time, we presented our role in the inception of the Women Writers Route, which was certified as a Cultural Route of the Council of Europe last year.
Heritage in Motion, the prestigious award that recognizes innovative multimedia and audiovisual projects that promote, explore or safeguard Europe’s cultural heritage, returns after a one-year hiatus with new categories. The deadline for submitting projects has been extended to 10 July 2023.
On 8 March, the International Women’s Day, the Women Writers Route and the Forum of Slavic Cultures as its member took part in organising yet another walk on the trail of women writers.
The future of FSK projects is bright, with the Forum entering into a collaboration agreement with the European Capital of Culture Nova Gorica – GO! 2025.
We kindly invite you to sign up for the Živa Award 2023 – Award for the Best Slavic Museum and for the Best Heritage Site in Slavic Countries. The call will be open until 15 March 2023.
