Project Stations in Cultural Centers

KHD logo rd 72 dpi 5 cmThe Danish cultural centers are the only cultural institutions in the municipalities specialized in facilitating locally based art and cultural initiatives. This facilitation is physical (premises, IT equipment, workshops, etc.) as well as knowledge-related (advice, networking, coordination, etc.).

From 2007 to 2009 a project was designed by The National Society of Danish Cultural Centers in order to exploit this expertise and to assist the development of 10 locally managed Project Stations all over the country. Locally, cultural project makers should have access to the necessary physical and knowledge-related facilities in these Project Stations and this was done by selecting 10 projects for each Station. 

Additionally, the 10 Project Stations entered into a nationwide network, partly to ensure that the projects selected were provided the best conditions for realization and partly to make it possible to gather knowledge and experience from the locally based cultural activities.

The aim of establishing locally based Project Stations was to give citizens in the local areas a possibility to develop and realize their art and cultural projects, and at the same time to give the cultural centers a possibility to strengthen their capability in facilitating locally based artistic and cultural initiatives.

IMG 06971The Summer School of the Visual was first carried out in 1997 under the organizational leadership of the Union of Cultural Societies Nova Gorica, an organization that deals with the field of social culture in the civil sphere even today. From 2000 on the organizational and executive headquarters of the Summer School of the Visual organization is with the regional branch office of the Republic of Slovenia Public Fund for Cultural Activities[1] Nova Gorica. It is taking place in the joint organization with the Audiovisual laboratory of the Institute of Slovenian Ethnology of the Scientific Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts[2]. The mastermind, head and mentor of the summer educational project Summer School of the Visual in Nova Gorica is Naško Križnar, PhD[3].

Placing the Summer School of the Visual to Nova Gorica, which is together with the neighbouring Gorica (Italy) a place that joins spirits of two different and formerly uniquely stigmatized cultures, is undoubtedly a contribution to the contemporary approach of coexistence of cultures and cultural entities in the European space.

Moreover, the relatively new university centre enables exchange and acquiring additional knowledge and represents a new source for the users of the school in the international space. Nova Gorica is the ideal place for knowledge flow from the Western European space into Eastern and South-eastern European space.

IMG 0753We have found ourselves in time and space where lifespan is prolonging and four generations encounter each other interactively. We live longer and new forms of intergenerational social networks are arising. The question we ask ourselves is whether we can find and make use of this new cohesion and provide flow of knowledge and experience, whether we live better and above all – what to do to make life more qualitative, coherent and interesting.

Due to its multitude and quality of organization culture, especially amateur culture, is a peculiar phenomenon. Within this creative field every group finds its space – regardless of age, gender, race, religion, nationality. This extensive social and cultural participation, detected and statistically registered in Slovenian amateur culture, comprises about 130.000 active creators (Slovenia has 2 million inhabitants) and their production is annually seen by 4 million visitors.
