”Shakespeare in love”, a cultural and foreseen activity in the Strategic Development Plan for the Victoria Intercultural Atelier, took place Friday the 28th of April 2017, in Slatina. This event marked the anniversary of 453 years since the birth of the great playwright William Shakespeare. On this occasion were broadcast sequences from the 1968 movie “Romeo and Juliet”, a comic strip from the famous director Franco Zeffirelli. Two people of culture known at local level had presentations on the life and works of the great English playwright: Valeriu Ciurea, referent at the Center for the Conservation and Promotion of Traditional Culture Olt, and Remus Iordache, actor and stage director.
The “International Rroma Day” festival (April 8th), a foreseen activity in the Strategic Development Plan for the Victoria Intercultural Atelier, took place Friday the 21st of April, in Slatina.
Although it did not take place on April 8th, the Department for Culture and Sport postponed the date of the festival due to the long discussions on the budget and its approval and because of the procurement procedures stated by national legislation.
However, all of these did not prevent public participation at this show of rroma culture and art.
