Launch of the Glac Project at Belgrade City Hall

On the 27th of June 2017, the Glac Project was officially launched at an organised by the Embassy of Australia at Belgrade City Hall. The co-hosts, Belgrade City Manager Goran Vesić and the Australian Ambassador, Her Excellency, Mrs Julia Feeney, gave welcome speeches together with the Minister of Culture and Information, His Excellency, Mr Vladan Vukosavljević, after which the Australian Co-Director of the Project, Professor and Pro-Vice Chancellor at the University of Sydney, Richard Miles, held a presentation about the project.

The opening ceremony was followed by a cocktail reception and musical performance by the fantastic Jovan Maljoković Balkan Salsa Band. We were thrilled to have celebrated Australia and the kick-off of our project in the presence of representatives of the Serbian government, members of the diplomatic corps, the Mayor of Sremska Mitrovica, Vladimir Sanader and his team, and representatives from the culture, education and business sectors in Serbia.

Our thanks go to the Embassy of Australia, the Ministry of Culture and Information, Belgrade City Hall and City Manager, The Tourist Office of Serbia, Tourist Office of Sremska Mitrovica and our colleagues from the museums that displayed promotional material on archaeological sites and Serbian cultural heritage. We are also grateful to Etihad, Rio Tinto and Innovo Consulting for supporting the event!
