Vizija

Carnica skupaj s partnerji, umetniki in kulturnimi delavci sooblikuje mednarodno kulturno središče in umetniško skupnost. Razvila je trajnostni in ponovljivi poslovni model za upravljanje območij kulturne dediščine, kar je priznala tudi raziskava, izvedena v okviru Interreg projekta Forget Heritage (2016-2019).

Slišimo in dajemo iniciative.
Pozdravljamo umetnost in negujemo javni prostor.
Skrbimo za človeška in nečloveška bitja.
