The city of Rijeka, a hometown of Regional Youth Info Centre Rijeka – UMKI, is declared a European Culture Capital 2020 and developed a series of cultural events with a strong European dimension. The goal of Rijeka as ECC2020 is to improve the range and variety of cultural offerings in the city, expand access and participation in culture, strengthen the cultural sector’s capacities and its links with other sectors, and to increase the international visibility and profile of the city and region.
Regional Youth Info Centre Rijeka – UMKI in partnership with University Library Rijeka and Museum of modern and contemporary art Rijeka had digitalised a large number of posters dating from 1950’s to 1990’s with the aim of presenting them to the public through (multimedia) art shows and exhibitions, with a contemporary take on the subject matter.
The main objective of this project was to develop a multicultural network for an open dialogue and exchange of experiences and knowledge and to produce public art and design exhibitions of aforementioned posters made by participants with their take on the selected topic.
- to involve participants in the work of community and to connect them with key cultural stakeholders;
- to educate participants about the history of Rijeka and Croatia and about cultural practices in Croatia in the past and now;
- to encourage linguistic and cultural exchange of knowledge;
- to inform young people about mobility programs through volunteer work.
By including foreign young people into the process of developing exhibitions, as well as implementing them, we expect for them to develop an intercultural dialogue with many relevant stakeholders and local community as a whole. Also, the intention of this project is for volunteers to learn more about history of Rijeka and Croatia, get familiar with the design and art tendencies over the course of 60 years in the last century, as well as contemporary ones, enable them first-hand experience in multicultural environment and to create cultural content for local, regional, national and European community by providing their own insights, knowledge, experiences and stance.
