At its 15th anniversary, the FSC made Slavic literature even more accessible, most notably its flagship 100 Slavic Novels series. It has donated books from this series to several libraries.
In cooperation with the Book Fair(y) in Istria the Forum of Slavic Cultures launched a new programme, Slavenski đardin (the Slavic Garden). At the 25th fair in Pula the programme featured contemporary Russian authors and presented the 100 Slavic Novels at one of the fair’s prestigious locations.
The Forum of Slavic Cultures will continue to cooperate with St. Petersburg. Based on already signed memorandums we are also to partner with the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Archives of the Russian Republic of Komi, Russian State Library and Association of Music Museums of Russia. We are also going to strengthen our cooperation with Rudomino All-Russian State Library for Foreign Literature.
The Forum of Slavic Cultures wound up its 15th anniversary year with a social event featuring a number of high-profile guests. The event was organised in cooperation with the Higher Vocational College for Hospitality, Wellness and Tourism Bled, Dr. Janez Bogataj, Bled Municipality and Bled Culture Institute.
At their autumn gathering with the locals and guests at the exhibition Four Elements: 3 – Earth in the Posavje Museum Brežice the Forum of Slavic Cultures nominated the Museum for the Živa Award for the best Slavic museum 2019.
Our new project, “Transformations: FROM traditional Slavic costumes TO Contemporary designs” premiered at the reception for foreign delegations in the framework of the St. Petersburg Cultural Forum.
In the framework of the VIII International Cultural Forum in St. Petersburg the FSC presented Živa sculptures to the best Slavic Museum 2019 and the best Slavic heritage site. At a special round table the representatives of Russian and Slavic museums discussed the significance of Slavic heritage in the global context.
A special guest of the VIII International Cultural Forum in St. Petersburg, the Forum of Slavic Cultures with its delegation of 40 members from 11 Slavic countries organised 11 events. The FSC thus marked its 15th anniversary with a notable promotion of Slavic heritage.
