MMC promote its long-term efforts to convert devastated area a former political camp, the island of Goli Otok. The project “Art gallery camping” is also part of a wider project to MMC s “Small port culture for a large port EPC”, Rijeka 2020, and as such entered in the bidding documents of Rijeka as a candidate city for European Capital of Culture 2020 year. The “Artcamping” is based on physical presence and stay of the artist on the beach as a busy city area during the summer, and artistic creation, which will be difficult to avoid correlation with the environment and present swimmers. The artists will also stay and spend the night in for the occasion set camp whose brief and symbolic existence we want to point out the many untapped opportunities in tourism, both in our community and beyond.
