Arsem Agency was established in 2009 with a view to organising and promoting various cultural projects, be them musical, theatrical, or literary in nature. Its activities were later further expanded to the field of publishing, now they focus on music education.


Music education

Arsem runs private music school, it offers affordable private music lessons for all ages and skill levels, stimulating chamber music groups formation. One can also join its string orchestra.


Publishing programme

A newcomer to the field of publishing, Arsem Publishing House opened in 2010 with Saga o Hallgerd [The Saga of Hallgerd] by the prominent and popular Slovene writer Svetlana Makarovič. It was followed by Čuk na palici [Barn Owl on a Stick], a collection of poems for children by the same author. They also published Cvetka Bevc's Desetka [The Mighty Ten], a teen novel that was selected by the Slovenian Book Agency for the Growing up with a book project in the school year 2012/2013, with every first-year secondary school pupil receiving the book in their nearest public library. Arsem's publishing repertoire also features Slovenian translations of acclaimed foreign authors such as Virginia Woolf, Hanif Kureishi (The Body, Julian Barnes (The Lemon Table), Tatiana de Rosnay (Sarah's Key), and Bekim Sejranović (Ljepši kraj [More Beautiful Ending]). The works of the latter four authors were translated in 2011 with support from the EU's Culture Programme 2007—2013 for literary translation projects.
