CHF executive secretary Diana Mašala Perković and the head of the office of the director Lana Šaš were in Pécs on the 30th of June to represent the CHF at the gala opening of the 100 Years of Prica exhibition at the city hall, opened to mark the one hundredth anniversary of the painter’s birth and Croatian Statehood Day.
The exhibition showcases a selection of Šerbu’s oeuvre from all of the periods of his fruitful and many years of creative work. Also presented was a prize for best academic work in the past five years awarded by the University of Mostar for the monograph Viktor Šerbu: A Lyrical Fauvist of Dubrovnik’s Colourism.
The Tomo Periša exhibition is organised by the Croatian World Congress and the Croatian Heritage Foundation and was declared open by the CWC’s friar Šimun Šito Ćorić.
The University of Split awarded Mateo Martinic Beros the title of honorary doctor at a ceremony staged at the lecture hall of its school of medicine. The proposal, which came at the initiative of Ms Bezić Filipović, has been supported by the University of Magallanes and Croatian honorary consul in Punta Arenas Rudi Mijač.
Ten Croatian associations from Piran, Velenje, Maribor, Novo Mesto, the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana, the Slovenian Pomurje region and Bosnian Croatians living in Škofja Loka performed folklore, singing and stage plays.
