The Rešetari Culture & Visual Arts Society is organising the XVII Rešetari Meeting of Poets on September 12th 2014. Saturday September 13th will see the promotion of the VI Collection of Poems by Young Poets and the presentation of the XVII Collection of Poems by Croatian Poets from the Emigrant Communities.
The club’s activities have also served to remind the younger generations of the twelve settlements of the autonomous 13th to 19th century Poljica Duchy. One of these settlements is Kostanje, home to the Klapa Pasika. They travelled to the USA at the invitation of Poljica region natives in Chicago to sing for their anniversary festivities.
A surprise for the participants of the Meeting and their guests – two years after the opening of the retrospective exhibition in Zagreb on the occasion of the 110th anniversary of the painter’s birth – was the opening of an exhibition of seventeen drawings in pen and Indian ink wash from a 1991 donation stored at the Modern Gallery in Zagreb, and one portrait entitled Indian With Wool Cap from a 1994 donation owned by the CHF by Croatian emigrant painter Kristian Kreković. On hand to present the project was Ljerka Galic, head of the CHF department of emigrant heritage.
The latest issue of features an article about a prominent French Croatian, the well-known construction entrepreneur and philanthropist Mate Gabelica, and the many CHF summer programmes – the Creating Theatre seminar, the Little School of Croatian Language and Culture, the Folk Costume Workshop and Task Force.
The festival in Orašje, as known as the junior brother of the Pula film festival, is opening a new chapter in its growth. Eight Croatian movies and one from Bosnia-Herzegovina will reaffirm its status as the key film event in the region.
The Summer exhibition will be open at the gallery of the CHF Pula through to September 20th. Joining the painter and event organiser at the gala opening to present the exhibited works was art historian Gorka Ostojić Cvajner.
The participants of the Task Force event and their work in Murter were showcased at the final evening along with a presentation of the participants of Croatian language instruction and photographic and video material from the fieldwork at the Colentum site.
The conference is organised by the County Chamber in Split, Split-Dalmatia County and the local branch office of the Croatian Heritage Foundation and aims to showcase the economic potential and advantages of investment in the county.
Split was the venue for the presentation of two collections published by the Croatian Emigrant Lyricism association – the 11th collection On Trodden Paths and the 12th collection In Search Of Lost Horizons. Ivanka Madunić Kuzmanović, a member of the association from the US state of Wisconsin, presented her own collection Croatia – Source and Estuary.
The True Revolutionary exhibition showcasing the work of Croatian-American painter Anton Perich is organised by the local branch office of the Croatian Heritage Foundation and the Dominican monastery.
