Ta veseli dan kulture (day of culture) at the Banka Slovenije Museum and Mala galerija
As part of the informal holiday Ta veseli dan kulture, which we mark each year in Slovenia on 3 December, the birthday of poet France Prešeren, we offered a special programme for children and adults at the Banka Slovenije Museum and exhibition room Mala galerija.
On Saturday 3 December 2022, children could join us at the Banka Slovenije Museum for specially designed thematic workshops. What we offered included a didactic puzzle game of occasional coins that helped them understand more closely certain important events and figures in Slovenian history, they could write a postcard from the Museum, put a Banka Slovenije stamp on it and also post it, while those a little older had the chance to use study sheets to take an independent educational stroll through the Museum, and they also made a map of Europe with us and in a didactic way learn about the euro area, its members and the various monetary units in Europe. Everyone could also view the most attractive exhibits – ranging from a cash machine (ATM), old piggy banks and money in Slovenia to a chair made of shredded euro banknotes, and a bar made of gold. These exhibits and a more in-depth look at the tasks and operation of Banka Slovenije were also available for adult visitors, who could take a guided afternoon tour.
We also organised a special programme for children at the Mala galerija Banke Slovenije, which is currently hosting an exhibition of UL ALUO photography students entitled Odboj (Bounce). This exhibition looks in a practical way at the creative process and invites visitors to enter into it and into a relationship with the photographers and exhibition itself.
