The Institute for Entrepreneurship and Economic Development (IPER), in cooperation with the Association of Old Crafts and Skills NIT, starts the realization of the project “Preservation and development of traditional Montenegrin crafts – goldsmiths”, which is supported under the Regional Local Democracy Program (ReLOaD), which finances The European Union, and implemented by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). In Montenegro, the ReLOaD program is implemented in partnership with the Podgorica Capital and the municipalities of Tivat, Kotor, Niksic and Pljevlja.
NGO Mladiinfo Montenegro attended the Info Day on the occasion of the presentation of the project.
Participants were addressed by Dženana Scekic in front of the UNDP, Ana Bulatovic in front of the Capital City and Smiljana Radusinovic in front of the Association of Old Crafts and Skills NIT.
Šćekić pointed out that goldsmith represents one of the five most important communication techniques and invited all interested to participate in the project.
Ana Bulatovic emphasized the support of the capital. She said that the Capital City intends to support all projects that will preserve traditional crafts and give them importance in the modern era.
Smiljana Radusinovic talked about cultural heritage, but also that mentioning cultural heritage is still a “dead letter on paper” and. sent an appeal to change that state.
She added that it is necessary to work hard on the creation and promotion of traditional craft products.
In the end, she invited all interested women to apply and participate in the project.
The training will last 10 days, twice a week and will be intended for women aged 20 to 67 years.
