The travelling exhibition “Life with bears” was created as a result of the international photo contest “Finding Bearings”. Its authors presented their visions of coexistence possibilities with Europe’s largest carnivore. The contest took place between March and April 2017. The expert commission received 86 photos from 34 authors from Slovenia, Croatia, Austria, Italy, Poland and Romania. Expert jury presented a selection of best works, which were showcased at the travelling exhibition “Life with bears”.
The travelling exhibition was displayed on many locations throughout Slovenia and Croatia during the project. After the end of the project, the majority of photos was donated to different organisations, which now display the photographs permanently in their public venues. In Croatia, on the other hand, you can still visit the entire exhibition in Zagreb’s Zoological garden, where they reproduced it for a permanent display outdoors.
You are warmly invited to visit it.
