Rag Dolls - Charity exhibition

UNICEF Rag Dolls Have Been Spreading Love for Twenty Years

from 30. Nov to 30. Dec 2023, from 9:00 to 18:00, Pentagonal Tower, Ljubljana Castle

This year, UNICEF rag dolls celebrate their 20th birthday and we are glad to again host them in the Ljubljana Castle’s Pentagonal Tower from 30 November to 30 December 2023, every day from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm.

The rag doll is a toy that is known in all cultures of the world, and for children in developing countries it is often the only toy they know. A UNICEF rag doll therefore symbolises a child who needs our help. With a donation of €30 we ensure a vaccination for one child against eight contagious child diseases, thus enabling a child in a developing country a healthy start to life and the development of his or her potential. The rag doll also brings happiness to us or the person who receives it from us as a gift.

UNICEF rag dolls are unique, handmade artefacts that bear numerous stories of the volunteers who create them. Each boy or girl doll receives many hours of love, effort, memories and beautiful wishes. Some of the volunteers did not have their own dolls to play with when they were children and therefore sew with even more passion in order to help other children.

At this year’s anniversary exhibition, the rag dolls of the UNICEF volunteers will be joined by the creations of students of the Faculty of Design, whose dolls have been created within the framework of the project BE CREATIVE, BE HUMANITARIAN; I = A hero of the future, with a large measure of creativity sustainability and empathy.

In this magical festive season, we invite you to visit the exhibition of UNICEF rag dolls, choose your own doll and spread love.
