The Museum of Slavonia in Osijek was a perfect location to host a training course for future certified trainers for heritage interpretive guides and writers.

An exceptionally rich history and culture of the region, condensed and curated in the Museum of Slavonia, provided an inspiring and challenging canvas for future interpretive trainers of the Interpet Europe organization (IE).
The training was also attended by Marko Trupković and Saša Tkalec of Cultural Innovation Center (InK). Marko has completed the certified interpretive guide trainer (CIGT) course, and Saša has completed the upgrade course for the certified interpretive writer trainer (CIWT).
In the European context and systems of cultural heritage protection, trainers of interpretive guides and interpretive writers are exceptionally important.
They promote and remind of the highest human values, such as respect for human dignity and human rights, freedom, democracy, equality and the rule of law.
The heritage interpretation goes beyond excellence in touristic services, as it holds a strong transformative and empowering role. It includes, acknowledges and respects individual and community identities, and histories.
The Museum of Slavonia is taking over the presidency and serves as the new temporary headquarters of the Association of museums of Eastern Croatia as of November 2019 for the next four-year mandate.
