Maribor’s Stint as Culture Capital Officially Started | Slovenian Genealogy Research | Scoop.it

STA, Maribor:

A high-profile ceremony in Maribor’s central square, Trg Leona Štuklja, started on Saturday, 14 January 2012, as the beginning of the one-year stint of Slovenia’s second largest city as one of the two European Culture Capitals in 2012. The event was addressed by President Danilo Türk, who is the honorary sponsor of the project, and European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth Androulla Vassilou.

 

The biggest cultural project in Slovenia’s history will bring more than a thousand events to Maribor and its five partner cities in the next 350 days that will, the organisers say, culturally and spiritually revive Slovenia.

 

The second Europaen Capital of Culture in 2012 is Guimarães in Portugal.

Reblogged from Knapco: European Museum of Tolerance and Human dignity

Ko sem jeseni pisala o pogumu in gorečnosti Johna (João Crisóstomo), večnega borca z razlogom, še nisem vedela, kako zelo se trudi za ohranitev in obnovo domačije nekdanjega portugalskega konzula Aristidesa de Souse Mendesa. Skupaj s konzulovim vnukom Carlosom de Sousa Mendesom sta bila aktivna pri fundaciji Fundação Aristides de Sousa Mendes, ki je pripravila razstavo, posnela film in imela v načrtu pred porušenjem rešiti konzulov dom ter ga dati v uporabo javnosti kot muzej strpnosti in človeškega dostojanstva (Museum of Tolerance and Human dignity), posvečenega vsem žrtvam inkvizicije, druge svetovne vojne, holokavsta in drugih nestrpnosti.

Več: Portuguese Times: Križarske vojne Johna Crisóstoma, butlerja aktivista iz New Yorka, 5.

P.S.: Ne poznava se, a v tej skupnosti sva kolega; če ti je tema zanimiva, jo morda kje uporabiš; želim pomagati prijatelju Portugalcu iz New Yorka, ki se trudi za plemenite cilje. John je bil med drugim butler Jackie Kennedy O. in z njo postal aktivist. Moj kontakt: Knapco.domain@gmail.com
