NARONA JUNIOR                                                                              reference to the text 

The forming of Narona Junior happened by accident. During the first Art and Education Platform Narona in 2011, which was completely experimental at the time, we have had invited our colleagues, the artists who, in part, were also working as professors of Fine Arts.

 

As we were conducting the workshop, building the sculptures and the exhibition, the children from Vid, curiously and unobtrusively engaged in the process. They showed great enthusiasm and interest, so we've decided to include them in the exhibition.

Next year, POWERPROGRESSIVEART invited the children from Vid: Martin Boras,  Matea Suton, Josip Volarevic, Petar Suton and Roko Ramic who were engaged during the 2011 also Karla Boras, Ante Bukovac, Bruno Markota, Romana Matic, Toma Matic, Andrija Siljeg, Danijela Vucic, Martina Vucic and Lucija Vucic with the approval of their parents. This opportunity occurred as a wonderful solution for the engaging schools and the children associations to expose their work at a museum event.

With the courtesy of the professors of Fine Arts: Nediljka Penovic (Primary School Opuzen) and Marija Cupic Senta (Primary School Vladimir Nazor, Ploce), also Svetko Ramic, Senior Coordinator of the Junior Neretva Buccaneers,  we've managed to form an annual display for such culturally selfless and aware work on the national heritage. 

By engaging the Narona Archaeological Museum, schools, Dubrovnik-Neretva County, the City of Metkovic and municipalities administrative we have connected people situated in the Neretva Delta array to many possibilities of presenting, exploring and living their abundant cultural and natural heritage. Thus Narona Junior became included in the Annual Curriculum of schools in the Neretva Delta array.

We have stopped this exposure as such due to the situation with the Roman Road project.

However, our collaboration with schools continued through the Powerweb - Art, Science and Education Platform.

These contributions were also presented at the International cultural project inspired by the antique period - Heritage and Local Development, afterward at The Cultural Heritage of the Deltas and through several lectures:

1. Connecting the institutions of public education, Narona Archaeology Museum (a place of  production and presentation, as well as the referencing, of the education workshop) and the Natural History Museum as a place of permanent reference for the Neretva Delta valley with schools and junior associations.

2. Learning classic techniques of the art production (clay, stone, mosaic) thus managing a proper method for treating the artefacts that this valley is abundant of.

3. Learning of the space of nature and managing proper methods for possible challenges (orientation in space, first aid, managing flood and alike situations, animal rescue etc)

4. Raising an awareness of cultural and natural values in historical overview, through the regular education but configured as a life-long learning process.

In the following text you may read Ms. Senta's text on their work:

"Our students presented a notion of time in the shape of the sun - clock. (...) By using scientific research and a historical object, they have created an unusual story of their own notion of time. By combining different relief structuring, each of the students made an individual work which was arranged as a new composition and a unique ensemble." According to the set of parameters by POWERPROGRESSIVEART, during the classes, the coordinator realized these results within the Annual Curriculum of the schools.

Clay reliefs by Opuzen Primary school students (coordinator: Ms. Nediljka Penovic):

Narona Junior 2013, Agora

Art and Education Platform Narona in 2013 emphasized the importance of making a valid and moral paradigm by gathering citizens and routing their activity towards the cultural heritage of Narona hidden inside and under their homes, their yards, their working spaces, villages, and cities, particularly at this archaeological area. With this theme, we have also marked the end of the European Year of Citizens that enabled Europeans to meet their rights and possibilities acquired by the EU Membership as well as the possibility of participating in Civil forums on politics and European issues. Hrvoje Manenica, the ex-director of Narona Archaeological Museum, now the Curator for late Medieval and Modern age at the Archaeological Museum in Zadar stated: "The opening of the museum entirely changed Vid and its life. From a small village, it developed into a recognizable destination on the cultural and tourist map of Croatia and Europe as well. The economic development of Vid was stimulated too. People from Vid are very proud of the museum and they look forward to every guest who comes to visit Vid and its museum..."  Read more @ The Best in Heritage.
