One of the goals for POWERPROGRESSIVEART was to create an annual art platform that would connect public and state institutions to work for the general benefit of the citizenry, state, and the world. One of the first such projects was the Art and Education platform Narona created in 2011.
The collaboration, in the field of nature preservation, opened at the Ornithology Collection (today - the Natural History Museum Metkovic) with the courtesy of Ms. Ivana Bace, the Director of the Museum.
In 2018, POWERPROGRESSIVEART organized an International Interdisciplinary Meeting (Healthy living – a long-term commitment) and an exhibition (NATURA: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE) in cooperation with Sabah Wetlands Conservation Society who manages Ramsar site, the urban wetland at Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia, aligned with the theme for COP13.
Beautiful Neretva Delta was the perfect place to conduct multiple events, the exhibitions, performances, happenings, lectures, concerts... Kiteboarding Komin, situated at the very mouth of the Neretva Delta, was our first base.
Activating the healing properties of the art production and healing features of the general involvement in art led to the - Larpourlartism events.
This cooperation prolonged to the next year and revealed itself through event WATER, STONE, FOREST, AND A VIOLIN.
It is a long history of humankind (and animal kind too) that those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.*
For instance, on the planet Earth, a man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons.**
