Adventures through the Old Skopje Bazaar – World Art Day 2023


I’ve got some super exciting news! 🤩

On 08.04.2023 we celebrated the World Art Day and we organized an epic interactive adventure in the Old Skopje Bazaar. It was absolutely amazing with great feedback from the participants! 😍 For this occasion I’ve teemed up with the Europe House Skopje, a division of the European Union Delegation based in Skopje.

My goal was to introduce participants to the traditions and old crafts that have been around for centuries. Through educational and gamified challenges, I took everyone on a journey they’ll never forget. 🗺️🧭 The themed adventure “The Quest for Master Kron’s Hat” was a total revelation for everyone who attended, promoting the magical space and atmosphere that persists through the generations in the bazaar. 💫Because of the tremendous interest from our audience, I created three activities, two gamified adventures and a thematic gamified interactive walk called “The Sounds of the Bazaar Crafts” for the same day. As part of this project, I designed and created a dozen props that I incorporated into Storytelling Skopje themed activities.

With my extensive scientific research background and heritage interpretation tools, I am able to craft an immersive experience that allows participants to learn about our heritage while having fun solving puzzles, following secret directions, and decoding codes. Throughout the adventure, their active participation is woven into every moment, fostering lasting memories and a profound connection with the local heritage. The orientation maps, which are based on a late 19th-century map of Skopje, were created with this approach in mind.

Trust me, you don’t want to miss out on the fun! Stay tuned for more exciting adventures and challenges in the future! 🔥
