The Slovak Canadian Cultural and Heritage Centre (SCCHC) has initiated the exhibit project named “Slovaks in Canada” whereby all interested Slovak Canadian organizations will jointly present the history of Slovaks in Canada over the last 120 years, in a major one-time exhibit.
The exhibit will foster awareness of Slovak Canadians, both in Canada and in the Slovak Republic. Within the current scope of the project are numerous exhibits in both Canada and Slovakia (Bratislava) composed of Slovak Canadian artifacts, photographs, works of art, literature, sports, as well as multimedia (WEB) and video presentations. To date, (as of May 2001), over 43 Slovak Canadian organizations have signed on to participate in this major undertaking.
The exhibit will premiere in Bratislava, Slovakia at the National Museum on July 4, 2002, and will be in Banska Bystrica starting September 4, 2002.
