MAROF HOUSE REVITALIZATION PROJECT
MAROF HOUSE REVITALIZATION PROJECT ( A CULTURAL HERITAGE MONUMENT) IN NOVI DVORI COMPLEX WITH THE AIM OF DEVELOPING CULTURAL TOURISM OF THE TOWN OF ZAPREŠIĆ
Zaprešić Artists Association has signed a concession contract which grants the Association the right to use a protected cultural heritage monument in the historic complex of Novi Dvori estate.
With this project the Zaprešić Artists Association wants to contribute to the development of cultural tourism in the town of Zaprešić. Firstly, by employing qualified personnel and educating and engaging our members we would improve our organizational capacity. Secondly, by hiring experts for public procurement our financial resources would be increased, thus enabling us to carry out the Marof House renovation and consequentially providing us with premises and space for organizing our activities. Thirdly, due to our rich experience, we are willing to help and advise citizens, institutions and associations with regards to arranging cultural events, exhibitions, workshops and lectures and organising residential programmes for foreign guest artists, which would help increase the number of initiatives leading to a larger number of art events. In addition, by making promotional posters and printed publications, as well as promoting the Association's activities through the media, we would encourage the community's interest in art. Finally, by the realization of all the activities listed above, the main goal of this project would be reached, that is, a more developed and improved cultural tourism of the town of Zaprešić.
