Second ESC Blog Entry – December

December in Maribor is month full of Coca-Cola/Christmassy events, where everyone is partying, shopping and gorging themselves. I can say I was not partaking too much, except in the eating part. Beside the festivities, December is the month where most of the projects are supposed to be finalized, therefore plenty of NGO’s and other project-based organizations funded by EU were very busy.
We did a lot in Pekarna Magdalenske Mreže as well: we commemorated World Aids Day, organized various screenings and workshops, like Filmopeka: “Being 17” and bookbinder’s workshop: “Make your own planner for 2020”; as part of “Pekarna Dobiš Daš” we payed few visits to Dom Antona Skale and made new friends there, we also organized tours, lectures and hosted two artists in our residency program GuestRoomMaribor, and pulled thru two exhibitions in K18 Gallery. First exhibition was visual representation of “Sedmi Glas” - an informal educational program intended to members of different ethnic minorities and other newcomers in Maribor. The idea behind the project was to develop participants’ critical voice through reflection on art and culture. The exhibition was conglomerate of different works created through numerous series of lectures, theoretical and practical workshops, reading circles and similar.

The exhibition was followed by the final conference of the project “Sedmi glas”. The conference was the roundtable discussion about employment conditions in the cultural field for non-Slovenians, the difficulty in finding employment and the systematic discrimination against migrants, especially women.

The second exhibition we organized was a final product of Ana Bassin’ residency (GuestRoomMaribor) titled “Ciklo”. The exhibition criticizes nowadays consumerism viz. capitalism as cause for the environmental disaster we live in.

Lep pozdrav!
