Program of activities and regular actions that explains the heritage and puts it at the service of education in gender equality, to build a more just and balanced society

4 different actions and activities (recreation, didactic unit, workshop for families, thematic guided tour) and aimed at different audiences (community, school, adults, families), highlight how heritage teaches us about the past and the present. They promote interactivity, they are participatory, they improve our knowledge and lead to debate. They are part of a transversal program with a pedagogical objective: to educate on gender equality and on the need to overcome our barriers.

European Dimension

It's in perfect harmony with the theme of the European Year of Cultural Heritage ("Where the past meets the future"), and affects one of the pending issues to be solved with equity in our society: the gender equality. The values ​​that it sustains and transmits form part of substantial aspects of the Europeanist spirit: cultural heritage is a common heritage, contains a message vehicle beyond its "physical" explanation and it diversifies the way in which society must be educated in shared values by entire EU

Get Ornamented! The ornaments from the heart of Europe

The main motto of our story is the Traditional Ornament, which fascinated lovers of folk culture all around the world. This current topic is a place which brings inspiration closer to young producers, designers, and artists. The aim of the event “Get Ornamented!” with the subtitle The ornaments from the heart of Europe is to present a wide range of traditional patterns occurring throughout groups of material, which are typical for the Central European region. The Slovak organization “Centre for Folk Art Production”, whose main objective is to develop craft techniques within the heart of Europe, wishes to use this story to describe ornaments using items made of various materials and serving different practical or representative purposes. This exceptional event is Slovakia-wide, focusing on the preservation of immaterial cultural heritage but in the same time to be inspiration for the new generations of a designer, artist and the wide public who will make - or use the sustainable, slow design enriched via tradition. Through the activities, we will present also the European dimension - the manifold, rich world of folk art creation showing how the world of ornaments is strongly linked to the European art tradition, how individual features stand out and cover the traces of several historical styles. But the same time- the event will also point to the link with modern Europe via contemporary design because the inspirations from local ornaments in the work of local designers can be very interesting for whole European space. The event is enriched by the opening exhibition “Traditional Ornament”, which will take place in the ÚĽUV Gallery and ends in January 2020.
