The City Speaks - Official launch in Maribor

By Natalia Chan

Last week ‘The City Speaks’ was officially launched in Maribor, this year’s European Capital of Culture. 

The Committee on Culture and Education of the European Parliament visited the exhibition, and were given a personal tour by the Maslaha team. 

The event also featured speeches from Suzana Žilič Fišer, Director-General of Maribor 2012, Andrew Page, the UK Ambassador to Slovenia, and James Hampson, Director of the British Council in Slovenia. 

Set against a backdrop of music from The Selector DJs (the British Council’s international radio station) and live graffiti from Rick Cosmo (aka Miha Kosmač), Maribor set an exciting precedent for the other cities across Europe which will host the exhibition over the coming months.

We also had a look around Ljubljana while we were there and have begun making exciting plans for the exhibition once its hits Slovenia’s capital this autumn…
