An old photographer in Korca had it and recently told her. Rozeta said that the camera could have been placed at the museum dedicated to her father but the house has not been maintained well.

                    [post_content] => TIRANA, Oct. 31 - Tirana Institute of Contemporary Art announced the first platform for contemporary art in Albania. During the last years Tirana has attracted the attention of the international contemporary art world through a number of events, among which the Tirana Biennale is the most important. A new platform is now born - Tirana Institute of Contemporary Art (www.tica-albania.org), which is the only institution for contemporary art in Albania and one with the ambition to offer substantial support to a developing art scene. It is for the first time that an Artist in Residency Program is established in the country, offering support to local and international artists who want to do research and develop their work in Tirana. After having analyzed the insufficiency of existing local institutions and the lack of new forms of dedicated cultural exchange within the Balkans, Europe and beyond, they thought time had come for a new approach towards cross-cultural relations and the potentials offered by artistic research. TICA Artist in Residency Program will conditionally host not less than three artists at a time: one from Albania; one from the Balkans and one from Europe or beyond. The program will be based on a flexible structure that can offer the possibility to move between different locations, contexts and thematic interests. It shall be structured as a project-based residency program, with an intention to encourage artists with different backgrounds and experiences to work together towards a final presentation (exhibition, publication, event). For detailed information on how and when to apply, please check the website: www.tica-albania.org. The Artist in Residency Program is made possible through the generous support of Institute of Tirana Biennale and Moving Culture.

                    [post_content] => GJIROKASTRA, Oct. 22 - rehabilitation of many parts of the museum sites in the town will start next year after a funding from the central government. The government gave $1.2 million, the first time the town gets that much money for that work. That investment will be mainly used for the historical part at the Qafa e pazarit. A project has planned the work to rehabilitate many old houses and other sites until 2011. Local authorities expect foreign donors to put their money and help the town, declared one of United Nations protected areas.

                    [post_content] => SHKODRA, Oct. 20 - Hungarian embassy in Albania and a group of Albanian veterans in the revolution who have graduated in Hungary, members of the Hungarian anti-communist revolution of 1956, held a commemoration ceremony in the Albanian northern city of Shkodra. Ambassador Sandor Szabo said they chose the town of Shkodra to remember that date "because the history of this city is closely linked with the fight against communism and that the greatest communist persecutions were held at this city that never agreed with its principles." "Albanian students studying in Hungary 50 years ago became active members of the anti-communist fight and were at the first ranks of the demonstrators," said Thoma Dardeli, one of them, now head of the Albanian Hungarian friendship association.
