An Invitation to Croatia
17th Jun 2010
As a project, the Hub Culture NooRepublic is historic: it represents the first landmass to be assisted by a social network, and will feature operational committees, fundraising, sustainability initiatives, global press and outreach programmes.
The goal of the initiative are:
•to raise funds for the preservation of Majsan ruins
•to make Majsan and Croatia an international contemporary art destination
•to provide Hub Culture an island branding opportunity with services and press: “NooRepublic”
•extensive Roman and Byzantine ruins, including one of the world’s most complete Roman villas
•a wild olive grove with olive-producing trees over 2,000 years old
•a strategic maritime location overlooking Korcula,the home town of 12th century adventurer Marco Polo.
With this in mind, a series of launch activities, including a visit to the island and evening party to establish initial contributions for the Restoration Fund, will be held 24-26 July 2010. Join Hub Culture in Croatia to help us preserve, polish and enhance a cultural jewel.
Why the “NooRepublic”? The prefix “noo” refers to collective consciousness, as posited by the philosopher Verdansky, and a Republic refers to an ideal form of social organization for the members of Hub Culture. Why Marco Polo’s birthplace? He was the original Hub Culture idealist – an extreme global traveller.
