The virtual project Maister’s Way was devised in 2017 by Alenka Juvan and Katarina Mahnič as part of a project submission with the title The Die is Cast to the Europe For Citizens, European Remembrance programme. Sadly, the die did not land on the right side and the project did not get funded. This current, slightly adapted and supplemented form was shaped by 15 participating institutions together with a large part of the Maister family. The primary aim of Maister’s Way remains the same: to connect via the web the places where Maister lived and worked and the institutions that keep any materials or memory relating to him. In this way materials from all over, relating to Maisters life and work and underpinned by state-of-the-art ICT, will offer a fresh and rich presentation of Maister’s personality. Internet users will be able to freely access the virtual collection at any time and from anywhere. In the coming years, the virtual version should also be supplanted by a real-world Maisters Way.
