In 2014, together with architect Mojca Horvat and digital strategy specialist Darja Golek, we established the CICADA Association for Promoting Creative Citizenship (see eCult Directory). The main purpose of the Association is to promote a creative activity of global citizens and to encourage them to take an active participation in creating the conditions for a sustainable society also through inovative digital tools for better access to heritage – a source of creativity.
