Dugo Selo – An Open Time Capsule
“Dugo Selo – An Open Time Capsule” is a joint project dedicated to the protection of Dugo Selo’s intangible heritage.
Through this project, which has the backing of the Croatian Tourism Board, the Dugo Selo Tourism Board, the Preporod Culture and Arts Association and the Town of Dugo Selo wishes to preserve old knowledge and skills while giving tourists and other visitors an opportunity to become a part, however briefly, of our region’s rich heritage.
The Preporod Culture and Arts Association is one of the oldest and finest Croatian folklore ensembles. Besides their performances of folk songs and dances, the association boasts of an extensive collection of folk attire. It is in fact the latter that provided the motifs for the DUGO SELO UMBRELLA, the town’s official souvenir (“it protects the head from rain and memories from oblivion”) that also serves as the symbol for the overall project.
Through a series of workshops (to teach embroidery, pottery, dance, songs, weaving…), our older fellow citizens will convey their knowledge and recollections to younger people, as well as all interested tourists who visit our town. In this way, we shall simultaneously sustain the knowledge and customs of our grandparents and spread Dugo Selo’s story far and wide.
You are all invited to the opening of the exhibition “Dugo Selo – an Open Time Capsule” at 6 p.m. on 15 September 2023, which also marks the beginning of the event “Old Recipes from Dugo Selo.” The invitation encompasses the various workshops that we have organized for you on 16 and 17 September 2023.
