Echoes from Invisible Landscapes: „GOING GÖRTSCHITZ“

It can be seen as an ethnographic-artistic exploration of the Görtschitz Valley in Carinthia by using a multimedia approach which focuses on photography and sound. The exhibition is a result of the project “Echoes from Invisible Landscapes” which is co-financed by the EU-“Europe for Citizens”-program and the AAA. It is open from April 14th until May 6th 2018 from 09:00 to 16:00.

Learn about Alps-Adriatic „Creative Synergies“ in Ljubljana and Graz!

The year 2018 is dedicated as the “European Year of Cultural Heritage”. Our common cultural heritage defines our European identity. Cultural Heritage is not just reflected through literature or art. It is also expressed in craft and artisan work which is handed over from one generation to another as well as through fairy-tales and stories which are being passed on.

Therefore two events in Ljubljana and Graz on April 17th respectively on April 18th 2018 will focus on cultural heritage-projects from the Alps-Adriatic area. These projects, mainly from Slovenia, Croatia and Austria, were supported by the EU-“Creative Europe”-program. A presentation of the AAA will also be part of the program.
