The Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., is finalising the implementation of the Slovenian Roma Route project, which will be implemented within the Eastern Cohesion Region between 1 October 2021 and 1 March 2023. On this occasion, we cordially invite you to the closing event, which will take place on Wednesday, 1 March at 17:00.

The project, funded by the Ministry of Culture and the European Social Fund, was implemented within the framework of the Call for proposals for the selection of operations for greater social inclusion of members of vulnerable social groups in the field of culture. In the implementation of the project, we worked together with our partners RIS, the Research and Educational Centre Rakičan Manor, RIC Novo mesto, the Roma Academic Club and the Slovenian Ethnographic Museum, who supported us with the implementation of individual content strands.

At the formal end of the project, we kindly invite you to join us at the final conference of the project, where we will present the results of the project, present statistical information related to the project, and discuss the challenges that have arisen in the implementation of the project and how to encourage the Roma community in the future to acquire additional skills and competences in the field of preservation of cultural heritage, cultural production, etc.

We will meet on Wednesday, 1 March at 5 p.m. at the premises of the Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., (Preradovičeva 1, 2000 Maribor). Due to the limited number of visitors, it is obligatory to register in advance at the following e-mail address: epeka@epeka.si.
