Description: The Association NOX ET SOLITODO was founded to support and initiate artistic activities in the village Lukovistia, the place where Slovak pt Ivan Krasko was born. One of the first activities of the association is the renovation of the historical building of the school. The main aim is to create the Regional Art Center.

Our camps will follow the rules of the Sustainability campaign.
