Brief assessment of the initiative’s results:

After 16 years of continuous operating of HC Parnas - they made few recognizable contents - especially on the field of cultural heritage, rural development and protected areas. Their biggest push forward was in the 2008 with their touring exhibition with additional contents (lectures, workshops, cultural programme). They have promoted the first Slovene writer Primož Trubar and his communication of national pride and the importance of Slovene literacy. They were successful in connection of Slovene around the Europe. They prepared 17 hosting exhibitions in Europe and 10 in Slovenia. Each year 4000 pupils attended educational programmes in museum Trubarjeva domačija (bookbinding workshops and other programmes). They also prepared some programmes in schools and libraries in other parts of Slovenia (cca. 1500 attendees). In the 2011 they have got award for the project, in which they involved locals into cultural heritage interpretation, promotion and protection. The last important initiative was to prepare the protection of baking of traditional Christmas bread 'poprtnik' in cooperation with Slovene ethnographic museum: they promote and connect carriers - seven groups of housewife from different parts of Slovenia. Now they made a proposal to pronounce this intangible heritage as heritage of national importance.
