EXHIBITION
CRAFTS. A LOOK AT SOME TRADITIONAL CRAFTS IN KOČEVJE, KOSTEL, OSILNICA, LOŠKI POTOK AND THE RIBNICA VALLEY
conceived by: Živa Ogorelec (Regional Museum Kočevje), Polona Rigler Grm (Ribnica Museum), Nikša Mendeš (Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka)
organizers: Kočevje Regional Museum, Ribnica Museum, Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka
curator: Ivana Šarić Žic (Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka)
Exhibition will remain open until 5 May 2022

The regions of Kočevje, Kostel, Loški Potok and the Ribnica Valley lie in south-eastern Slovenia along the border with Croatia. A karst and wooded landscape, its infertile soil and severe climate have influenced the creation of today virtually extinct traditional crafts.
The residents of these regions, like those on the Croatian side of the Kupa River, generally eked out a living by selling home-made products, often from household to household. They sold so-called “dry goods” such as small woodwork articles, linen, broadcloth, pottery, various sundries, gaming pieces and even certain prohibited raw materials.
The port in Bakar, and later in Rijeka as well, played a vital role here, as their proximity considerably influenced the economy of these regions. Peddlers (known locally as pokućarci), particularly those from the Kočevje area, sold their wares in these ports and, from the 18th century onward, also bought various fruits from southern climes and other materials and then re-sold them in the interior.
Besides “dry goods,” the exhibition will also feature 11 almost entirely non-existent crafts from these Slovenian regions: production of quicklime, shoes, and headwear from dormouse hides, milling, cartage, brick-making, broadcloth and shingle manufacturing, barrel-making, weaving and the work of craftsmen who maintained saws and who, in Croatia and Slovenia, were called žagmojstri.
On this occasion, we shall also symbolically present a part of our inventory made in Ribnica that could have been purchased at local fairs in the vicinity of Rijeka.
The organization of this exhibition marks the continuation of successful collaboration between the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka with the Kočevje Regional Museum, which began with the guest appearance of the exhibition “Moj uoča je šiu za vurame: putovima vurmohara gornjega toka rijeke Kupe (On the Paths of Watch Peddlers Along the Kupa’s Upper Course)” in Rijeka in 2017.

THE SEA CONNECTS
organizers: Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka, Ajkula Homeland War Special Police Association
exhibition opens: 12 April 2022 at 12 p.m. on the City of Rijeka display boards on the Korzo
The exhibition can be viewed until 20 April 2022

The exhibition called “The Sea Connects” is a part of the “People of the Sea” event programme organized through collaboration between the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka and the member associations of the Museum’s Civic Museum Council (Primorje-Gorski Kotar County Association of the Deaf and Hearing Impaired, Stol Culture Association of Kraljevica, Vida Association for Assistance to Addicts, the Ajkula Homeland War Special Police Association and the Kombinat Creative Collective).
The event’s programmes will present various aspects and activities pertaining to life with the sea as practiced by the member associations of the Civic Museum Council and their beneficiaries. Even though these associations differ in terms of their activities and the needs of the beneficiaries for whom they care (deaf persons, war veterans, recovered addicts, amateur creators, heritage lovers), they share the maritime ambience in which they function, the common identity of the Littoral and the specific activities tied to the sea.
The maritime activities of the members of the Ajkula Homeland War Special Police Association will be presented on a series of display boards.

EXHIBITION
THREE CENTURIES OF SHIPBUILDING IN KRALJEVICA
organizers: Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka, Stol Culture Association of Kraljevica
exhibition opens: 28 April 2022 at 7 p.m. in the Nova Kraljevica/Frankopan Palace
The exhibition can be viewed until 30 June 2022

The exhibition “Three Centuries of Shipbuilding in Kraljevica” is the second in the “People of the Sea” series of events. It will highlight the almost three hundred year shipbuilding tradition in the Kraljevica shipyard.

As a part of this event and in collaboration with the Vida Association and the Kombinat Creative Collective, discursive and educational programmes for children and youth will be organized. The intention is to familiarize them with the medium of photography through a variety of creative activities, encouraging them to express themselves creatively and provide the foundation for visual literacy and potential ideas for future professional careers. Furthermore, as a creative process, photography has a potentially transformative and therapeutic impact as they can use it to address sensitive topics through the prism of their own expression and insight.
