Family Silver – this is the title of the Opening Ceremony of the City of Culture 2019. The City of Culture Pilot Project was launched by the Fund for the Promotion of Art. The winner of the final trio, which consisted of the cities Nové Zámky, Spišská Nová Ves and Banská Štiavnica, became the last one mentioned, and thus Banská Štiavnica.
Preparations for the Banská Štiavnica Project Concept 2019: Identity Renovation moved further and the program started on January 19, 2019 at 17:00. TRAKT with videodocumentation and an interactive digital project based on the graffiti principle was there. Graffiti in the hands of a handsome boy Vojtík uncovered a 100-year group photo of the communities in the region of Banská Štiavnica. The whole program “Almazia” continued in the premises of the Cultural Centre.
