     MISSION AND VISION




Advancing and encouraging cultural, scientific, artistic, sports, economic, and other forms of cooperation between Croatian and Dutch people

Peacekeeping and international understanding and cooperation

Displaying cultural, artistic, scientific, developmental, economic, and relevant social achievements of the Netherlands to interested audience in the Republic of Croatia

PLAYING FOR CHANGE

The foundation KroNland was created to develop, nurture and promote all foreign cooperation between the Croatian and Dutch people and to present cultural, artistic, scientific, developmental, economic, and other social achievements of the Netherlands to the interested public in the Republic of Croatia. Therefore, Stichting KroNland came up with a project called Cultural Industry. Cultural Industry is a ten-day festival in Sisak-Moslavina County (hereinafter SMC), Croatia, that would take place from 16.8. to 25.8.2021. The festival will be filled out with numerous activities that would take place in SMC. The festival is going to be filled with music, dance and art performances. Participants will experience and explore the culture, history, geography, and nature of the region and last but not least expand the network of acquaintances. We are especially proud to announce the partners, Amsterdam Street Art and Re: Think Sisak that would work together to make a mural as a symbol of Dutch-Croatian friendship. In addition to them, with the help of other partners, KroNland is calling photographers and volonteers who would like to be part of this wonderful festival.



Re:think Sisak

An interview with Dahna Prskalo Peco


Every small city should have a big art festival. Since 2015 walls in Sisak have been turning
into works of art, changing people's views of their everyday life, making them stop, look,
think and shape their thoughts. Sometimes they just walk on by, sometimes they watch
them from their cars while being caught in a traffic jam, deciding what the murals mean to
them on that particular, and ever so different day.

THE DUTCH HOUSE


The “Dutch House” is a welcome new addition to the institutions preserving and promoting Croatia’s industrial heritage 


In Sisak, a city well-known as an industrial centre, the unusual pyramid-shaped façade of the Dutch House truly evokes the buildings on Amsterdam’s canal sides. It was built in the 19th century as commercial premises and a large warehouse. The beautifully restored complex also houses the Striegl art gallery and the Kraker collection of phonographs, gramophones and radios

 The Dutch culture


Culture guide to the Netherlands... 


Visiting another country can be compared to entering into a sort of fantasy land, where new and delightful sights, smells, and sounds are blended with a strange and eccentric way of life – one that is quite different from what you’re used to. It’s one of the most exhilarating experiences ever; however, it can be intimidating to the uninitiated.
