Young people should know their tradition
Work and activities of Ethno Network are of exceptional importance
for all of us, but especially for young people who should really know
their tradition and cultural heritage. Unfortunately, traditional values
and cultural heritage are often misused in our country for political
purpose, and then the most important thing, that Ethno network does,
remains somewhere behind.
I think we should all together, in our society, pay more attention to
everything that makes our culture and what is the most beautiful part of our history, heritage and tradition. Exactly
because of this, I absolutely support the activities of Ethno Network and especially the way you do your job.
Ethno gallery, which you have recently opened in Brankova street, is one of the few places in Belgrade where people
can find traditional handicrafts, and in fact is the perfect place, because in addition to exhibited products people can be
educated in the techniques of traditional crafts, and there are not many similar opportunities. I consider this another
touristic pearl in our capital.
