The Calling: Sea Captain
Cavtatportal (Civil Society Association, namesake of the Cavtatportal.com) and Student Hall of Residence Dubrovnik have organized a lecture and open discussion titled: "The Calling: Sea Captain". The event was held on on Tuesday, October 11, 2016. on the Residence Hall's premises.
Master seaman Capt. Dubravko Sekondo kindly accepted the invite and delivered a lecture as part of the program titled Anticipatory development of KSAOs desireable in today's and tomorrow's labor market.
During his lecture and the subsequent open-question session, Cap. Sekondo ventured to portray truly all aspects of life at sea and its impact on the seamen, their familes and the society as a whole.
His penetrating insights interspersed with many real-life challenges analyzed via humouros anecdotes, followed by an fully open discussion that can be rightfully characterized as the no holds barred approach, held the audience of hopeful student-candidates and the present Residence Hall's employees spellbound for full two hours and left yearning for more.

About the Epidaurus Festival
In their own words: "The Epidaurus Festival is a festival of music which will also include other artistic events (drama, theatre, literature, poetry, various presentations, folklore, educative programmes, matinees for young talents, getting to know the area, its beauty, nature, tradition, etc.)."
Ivana Marija Vidović, Artistic director of the Epidaurus festival: (...)"My wish is that every sound produced at Epidaurus Festival would merge with Cavtat's magical hug, and that every word, every verse, whether sung or spoken, would, for centuries to come, continue to echo throughout its old streets, the very same ones that -- within and of themselves -- had been a stage for centuries already."
