Appeal and two invitations

09. 04. 2022

The call for political parties, candidates in the 2022 National Assembly elections was published on March 26, less than a month before the National Assembly elections. So far, we have received some responses, we expect more, so we are updating this document, although it was originally released as definitive. When we publish its next edition, it will no longer be available at this link, but it will always be available in the Articles on cultural policy section. We gratefully accept all comments. We will be happy if, after the elections, we manage to form a wider forum with representatives of parliamentary and non-parliamentary parties and interested individuals, and together contribute to the much-needed changes in cultural policy.

The Seviqc Brežice 2022 program has not yet been approved because we are waiting for the results of the last tender at the Ministry of Culture. Snežnik Castle may be our new location this year. While visiting this part of Slovenia, where every drop is a sweet poison, we also met Mrs. Alenka Veber from Rihtarjeva domačija (Rihtar's homestead). We invite you to view the article Prinesite vse s seboj, za drugo poskrbimo mi (Bring everything with you, we take care of the other). If we summarize the beginning of the article by journalist Simona Bandur: Loška dolina is barely an hour and a bit away from the capital, but it is still considered a remote corner of Slovenia. They say that it reveals beautiful scenes every season, but due to the coldest place in Slovenia, Babno Polje, it is very interesting on days when it is cold. On harsh winter afternoons, you can also see the cold, says Alenka Veber, a guide through the heart of Notranjska and beyond. We visited it in the last days of winter, as well as another eternal creator of ideas in the Loka Valley, Benjamin Žnidaršič.
