Bernadette Lynch feels that it is important to establish cooperation in the full sense of the word in order to reduce the odds that someone will perceive the project as something foreign with which they cannot identify.
On Friday, 24 November in Rijeka, as part of the conference on participatory governance, a meeting was held between all Croatian European Capital of Culture 2020 candidate cities in order to determine potential areas of cooperation on the Rijeka 2020 – ECOC project.
Nina Obiljen Koržinek, Minister of Culture of the Republic of Croatia, participated in the closing panel of the conference Participatory Governance in Culture: Exploring Practices, Theories and Policies.
This November, as part of the 27 Neighbourhoods flagship, small local neighbourhood community get-togethers are starting.
The conference included a series of panels, discussions, workshops and supporting programming with the aim of answering the question posed by the topic – Belonging & Becoming: Culture, Heritage and our Future.
“Tomislav Gotovac: Crisis Anticipator”, the main publication of the retrospective exhibition “Crisis Anticipator – Don’t ask where we’re going”, will be presented on Monday, 20 November at 5 PM in the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, where the exhibition is also located.
Starting on 16 November, each Thursday, at Mali Salon on Korzo, in front of Radio Rijeka, or in the Rijeka Public Reading Room in case of bad weather, you will be able to find ECOC tandems who will answer your questions about the project.
