Project partners

Our project would not be happening if it was not for very generous assistance of our two Norwegian partners – non-profit organisations working in the field of protection and operation of cultural heritage: Norsk Kulturvav (prelink na, a Fortidsminneforeningen – National Trust of Norway (prelink na

Throughout the project course, we shall convene four joint meetings (provided that the epidemiological situation permits us to do so in both countries) in order to set up marketing strategies and most convenient ways to advertise and sell the products made in our new manufactures. The meetings will serve as discussion platforms to find best examples in Slovakia and Norway to serve as role models. One of our meetings in Slovakia and our stay in Norway will, therefore, serve as a study trip visiting similar institutions offering best practices in the field. Another of our joint meetings will be devoted to designing and writing a manual/presentation about monument advocacy encompassing ideas helping to explain the significance and necessity to protect cultural heritage in Slovakia as well as in Norway.

  • Originally planned meeting with Norwegian partners

    At the beginning of May 2020, according to the original agreement, our Norwegian partners were to come to Slovakia to join us at our first meeting. We decided to postpone the meeting to the fall – end of September and beginning of October.

  • Striving to make our first meeting come true

    At the beginning of September, we contacted our Norwegian partners again. We discussed the possibilities of their travels to Slovakia for a meeting in the Red Monastery – via Krakow or Vienna. At that time, the Government of the Kingdom of Norway recommended that its citizens travel abroad only in the most urgent cases. Therefore, we decided, also with regard to the pandemic situation during that month, to postpone the meeting until the time when the vaccine is available. However, we will try to get in touch via video conferencing on the occasion of the launch of the new museum website.


    A video conference was held with our project partners. We agreed on the framework and frequency of meetings in this form. We very much believe that we could meet in person at the Red Monastery in the autumn. Until then, we will develop a joint work: a set of arguments for advocacy of cultural heritage.
