The Slovenian Culture and Information Centre (SKICA) in Vienna at the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia, together with the Slovene Arts & Culture Residency programme by the Ministry of Culture is a backbone of a vivid and intense cultural cooperation between the two neighbour states.

Every third day, Slovene artists and producers feature on cultural events in Austria. (Check the database or explore the map.) Half of these events take place in Vienna; there is also a strong connection with Carinthia, the region with a culturally prolific Slovenian minority. In 2018, the Grand Austrian State Prize goes to writer Florjan Lipuš (b. 1937) who has written in Slovene language. In 2011, however, Maja Haderlap (b. 1961), also a Carinthian writer, was bestowed the Ingeborg Bachmann Prize, one of the most important in contemporary German literature, for the novel Angel of Oblivion, which was later turned into a play and produced in Slovenia by the Slovenian National Theatre Drama Ljubljana in 2014.

Slovene artists and producers regularly participate at established Austrian festivals: Waves Vienna (MENT Ljubljana, Kino Šiška Centre for Urban Culture, SIGIC, Slovene Music Information Centre...), Vienna Design Week (Niko Kralj, Gigodesign, Poligon Creative Centre...), LET'S CEE Film Festival (Staragara, Sever & Sever Production, Petra Pan Film Production...), Festival of Literature and Wine in Krems (Versopolis), and Ars Electronica in Linz (Kapelica Gallery). Two Slovene artists have even won the prestigious Golden Nica Award there: (Marko Peljhan in 2001 and Maja Smrekar in 2017). The P74 Centre and Gallery regularly presents artists at the ViennaFair, while Photon Gallery participates in the ViennaPhotoBook Festival and viennacontemporary. In 2013, Photon opened a new gallery space in Vienna.

Quite a few partnerships have lasted for years, among them, the collaboration between the temporary radioCona and the Ö1 Kunstradio; the creative collaboration between the accordionists Bratko Bibič and Otto Lehner; Aksioma Institute has collaborated in various projects with the University of Applied Science FH JOANNEUM Graz; Flota Institute with the D.ID Dance Identity platform for choreographic research and the practice of contemporary dance and its Tanztage festival held in Oberwart; and the Slovene Ethnographic Museum with Weltmuseum Wien in the SWICH (Sharing a World of Inclusion, Creativity and Heritage) project.
