AICC offers to the contemporary Romanian society a series of cultural projects, meant to raise questions about the role the Romanian cultural space has in the everyday life of Romanian citizens and the Romanian diaspora.
We aim to bring to the public attention issues that we consider important in the context of a series of questions which, as people who belong to the Romanian cultural space, it is only natural we should ask: who are we, where do we come from and where are we going?
Cultural identity is fundamental for a structured development of the Romanian and European societies.
At the moment, we are focusing on the following projects :
The quest for having a copy of a Dacian statue built in Bucharest. About 1900 years ago, following the wars between the Romans and the Dacians (the ancestors of the Romanian people), Roman emperor Trajan ordered the creation of a number of impressive statues depicting Dacian men in dignifying poses. In August 2013, AICC submitted to the authorities an official request regarding the build of a replica in Bucharest.
Romanian Letters (www.romanianletters.ro), a website that suggests, on a weekly base, a series of articles about Romanian people, events, history, places and cuisin
Statui de daci (www.statuidedaci.ro), an online museum based on the research conducted by Dr. Leonard Velcescu. The project focuses on the statues of Dacian men erected by Roman sculptors.
Columna lui Traian (www.columnaluitraian.ro), a website that gathers information related to the famous Trajan’s Column. The ancient monument, so meaningful to the Romanian history, celebrated its 1900th anninversary in May 2013.
“Columna lui Traian ȋn arta contemporană” (“Trajan’s Column in Contemporary Art”), an exhibition dedicated to the artists who find inspiration in Romania’s ancient history. The exhibit will be open from the 25th of October to the 3rd of December.
Vocile Oraşului (City Voices) is a series of events aiming to rediscover the landmarks of the Romanian city life in the 21st century. Also, the project, created in partnership with the strategic PR company Thinkship, aims to bring together creative people and unique ideas.
We are always open to new ideas and topics which could help all of us to get insights into the identity related answers that we aim to find together.
