    programme


The City of Women Association for Promotion of Women in Culture was established in 1996. It organises the annual international festival of contemporary arts in Ljubljana called City of Women and aims to raise the visibility of high-quality innovative creations by women artists, theoreticians and activists from all over the world. Its presentation of the artistic and cultural production of women in the performing arts, music, visual arts, film and video, literature and theory, provokes a debate and raises awareness as to the currently disproportionate participation and representation of women in arts and culture, as well as in society as a whole.

City of Women simultaneously provides a platform that considers pertinent critical contemporary issues. Alongside its festival manifestation (which offers an increasing number of its own productions and co-productions, mainly from the field of performing arts and dance) it is also present throughout the year, organising lectures, public discussions, civic initiatives, and so on.

International activities

In 2017 the City of Women Association started participating in a two-year international program titled Performing Gender – Dance makes differences. Designed for European professionals in the field of dance and performance art, the project aims to improve skills and discourses on the intersections between dance/performance and gender.

It also works on promoting Slovenian artists abroad within various partnerships and/or international co-productions.
