Projects 2011

PROJECTS AT HOME

Summary
In 2011, SIGIC established its own new internet site and started publishing the online music magazine Odzven (Echo). The magazine features high-quality articles on music, offers an in-depth look at the Slovene as well as international music scenes, and invites the readers to reflect on music. It thus plays an important role in the formation of  Slovene music culture.

In March 2011, SIGIC took part in the event Kulturni bazar (Cultural Bazaar) and was one of the 200 Slovenian  cultural establishments presented. SIGIC also presented its organization at the conferences of primary and secondary school headmasters.
