CELEBRATING IRELAND’S ARCHAEOLOGICAL HERITAGE
organizers: Archaeological Museum in Zagreb and Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka
conceived by: Michael MacDonagh, chief archaeologist in Ireland’s National Monument Service,
John Lalor, photographer in Ireland’s National Monument Service
collaborator: Porin Šćukanec Rezniček, research associate at the Archaeological Museum in Zagreb and exhibition curator
opening: Museum’s Atrium on 8 November 2023 at 7 p.m.
exhibition will remain open until 19 January 2024
This photographic exhibition features approximately thirty of Ireland’s most relevant archaeological monuments, landscapes and historical buildings that have been highlighted from the almost 12 thousand years of human habitation on the island.
Ireland’s archaeological heritage will attract visitors with the diversity of its unusual sites, such as the Newgrange tumulus, where visitors can genuinely experience the beliefs of ancient peoples during the winter solstice, or the picturesque castles or remote hermitages that now also serve as backdrops for Hollywood movies.
Furthermore, archaeologists consider these photographs extremely valuable conservation records for the future of the European and world heritage, as stated by one of the exhibition’s creators, Michael MacDonagh.
The attractiveness of this heritage certainly serves as invitation to visit the actual sites.
The exhibition was made possible through cooperation with Ireland’s National Monument Service, the Irish Embassy and the Archaeological Museum in Zagreb.
POST-YUGOSLAV METAMUSEUMS: REFRAMING SECOND WORLD WAR HERITAGE IN POSTCONFLICT CROATIA, BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA, AND SERBIA
author: Nataša Jagdhuhn, Ph.D.
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan, London
location, date and time: Museum’s Marble Hall, 22 November at 6 p.m.
The book is based on its author’s doctoral research into the fates of so-called people’s revolution museums in the territory of the former Yugoslavia after its collapse. This German scholar attempted to ascertain how and whether these specialised museums and exhibits managed to redefine themselves and adapt to the new political circumstances, as well as advances in museology.
The book will be presented by Vjeran Pavlaković, Ph.D., a professor at the University of Rijeka Faculty of Humanities and Social Science and Tea Perinčić, Ph.D., an advisor in the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka.
The workshops for young creators are held in the Miracle Room at the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka and in the Museum’s garden. Educational programmes are also being held at the remote collections.
BIRTHDAY IN THE MUSEUM
Educational birthday workshops in the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka are aimed at children aged 4 to 12. The workshops are thematic, and the celebrants can choose from six available themes: ‘Masquerade Ball,’ ‘The Trsat Dragon,’ ‘On-board Emergency,’ ‘Unusual Form,’ ‘Challenge Trail,’ and ‘Treasure Hunt.’
The programme will proceed in the Museum’s premises. Must be arranged in advance.
MIRACLE ROOM ON THE ROAD
Miracle Room on the Road is intended for children from distant schools, so that they can more easily participate in educational and creative programmes tied to the Museum’s inventory and content, as well as segments of the local cultural and historical heritage.
MORNING IN THE MUSEUM
WHEN I GROW UP I’M GOING TO BE A TELEVISION
date and time: 18 November 2023 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
leader: Iva Volović
The workshop is intended for children aged 6 to 12.
Apply: by sending a message to the Miracle Room (Čudotvornica) Facebook page, by e-mail: email@example.com or telephone at +385 51 213578.
Only genuine aficionados likely know that 21 November is World Television Day. These formerly “small screens” are today no longer so small, and the youngest spend more time with them than we’d like. Even so, the Museum’s Miracle Room will organize a fun, educational and creative workshop at which television will be “watched” somewhat differently. Workshop participants will go back in time and take a stroll through television’s history, and besides learning they will attempt to revive the museum’s “residents” with a short film that they will make on their own! So the paintings will walk, the statues dance… Participants will learn about making a film in the frame-by-frame technique, or stop-motion animation, and create a museum film together!
