Merlin Association for Promotion of Creativity

Many Croatian holiday resorts are faced with the problem of the illegal sale of the imported and non-authentic kitsch souvenirs made of plastic materials. In the scope of its creative workshops, Merlin Association has been organizing the sales-exhibition manifestation The Original Splendor Of Arena. The goal of this manifestation is to organize legal sale of quality souvenirs in front of the Pula's Amphitheater, and to encourage local population in the participation, design and production of the authentic handicrafts based on the cultural and historical inheritance of Pula. Project is implemented in the cooperation with the institutions and organizations in the sphere of social work and protection of marginalized groups, Bureau for Health and Social Welfare, the Bureau Of Culture, the department for Utility Order and the National Tourist Board in Pula.
