Drage rojakinje in rojaki, na četrtkovem dogodku na SSK me je gospa ddr. Marija Stanonik prosila za pomoč.
V njenem imenu vas prosim, če lahko priloženi dopis objavite na spletnih straneh oziroma ga na kakršen koli drugi način posredujete v svoji skupnosti, posebno tistim rojakom, za katere veste, da se ukvarjajo s čebelarstvom.
Vnaprej hvala v mojem imenu in v imenu gospe Stanonik!
Zvone Žigon, Urad Republike Slovenije za Slovence v zamejstvu in po svetu

Fotografije čebelnjakov
Dvojna doktorica Marija Stanonik, ena najvidnejših slovenskih raziskovalk s področja slovenske besede in izročila, pripravlja knjigo Čebela - žlahtna spremljevalka slovenske kulture.
Išče fotografije, s katerimi bi rada zajela celo Slovenijo in tudi rojake v zamejstvu in izseljenstvu. Še toliko bolj, ker je prav čebela ena najzgodnejših znamenj, ki je ponesla v svet ime slovenskega človeka. In 20. maj letos bo prvič svetovni dan čebel, uvedbo katerega so dosegli slovenski čebelarji.    
Ddr. Stanonikova se toplo priporoča za čim prejšnji odziv oziroma fotografije čebelnjakov slovenskih rojakov zunaj Slovenije: »Seveda bi bilo imenitno, ko bi imel čebelnjak kakšno znamenje slovenskega, če pa tega ni, pa naj bo, prosim, v podnapisu poudarjeno, da gre za slovenskega človeka in da je (morda) tradicijo čebelarjenja prevzel od dóma.
Vsekakor naj bo fotografija dokumentirana: kraj in čas, avtor fotografije. Naj bo tudi dovolj kvalitetna, da bo sprejemljiva za objavo, pomembno pa je tudi soglasje za njeno objavo

Fotografije s pripadajočimi komentarji in soglasjem TAKOJ pošljite na elektronski naslov: marija.stanonik@zrc-sazu.si.
20. maj je pred vrati, zato se avtorica resnično priporoča za hiter odziv in se zanj že vnaprej iskreno zahvaljuje.

Great Honour for the Slovenian artist/sculptor from Perth - Ron Gomboc:

He trusted us with the following:

"At the beginning of the year, during the Sculpture by the Sea exhibition a cultural delegation from China visited Perth and were impressed with my sculpture on display at Cottesloe and also visited our gallery sculpture park. Following that visit an invitation was extended to me to represent Australia in these two international cultural events. The first one was  The Fourth Silk Road International Arts Festival  in Xian, China where there were artists from 103 countries and I was honoured to be the only sculptor representing Australia and see the Australian flag on display.

My sculpture is now represented in the Xian National Gallery Museum Collection.

Following this major event in Xian invitation was extended for my participation in the International Contemporary Art Exhibition in Songyang.  Again the only Australian artist. It was an enormous honour for me to see the Australian Flag flying at the official opening of the Songyang Art Gallery where my work was also acquired into their collection. These two events were totally funded by the Chinese Ministry for Culture.  An enormous promotion to the world of China’s cultural awareness. The images of three sculptors with Slovenian background, Damian from Nova Gorica, Marcia De Bernado living Brazil (Slovenian father)."   Ratimir Marijan (Ron)  Gomboc

Spoštovani,
while searching the internet for Slovenian communities, we came across the website of the Slovenians in Australia.
10 years ago, we created a bilingual website (English and German) about the history, culture and traditions of the Slovene minority in Hungary, the goal of which is to inform the descendants of the Slovenians from Hungary around the world (who do not speak Slovenian and Hungarian anymore) about their roots and also to make the Slovene Raba Region of Hungary known all over the world.
We thought you and perhaps the readers of your website might be interested in our website:    www.vendvidek.com
Maybe some of the members of the Slovenian Communities in Australia are descendants of Slovenians from Hungary who once emigrated from the Slovene Raba Region to Australia.
Lep pozdrav in vse najboljše!
Tibor Horvat in Joël Gerber
