Cultural agreements

The legal basis for cooperation is the 2001 Agreement between the Government of the Republic of Slovenia and the Government of the Republic of Austria on cooperation in culture, education and science. On the basis of this agreement, a third working programme for the period 2014-2016 was signed in Vienna in December 2013. The 1998 Agreement on Cooperation in Science and Technology also covers the area of science.

Exhibition series

Since 2013 the Consulate General of the Republic of Slovenia in Celovec/Klagenfurt hosts a series of exhibitions A Window onto our Neighbours prepared by the Slovenian Association of Fine Arts Societies (ZDSLU). Each year a pair of artists from Slovenia is presented at the Consulate premises.

The Slovenian minority in Carinthia

The two neighbouring countries are linked by historic, cultural and economic ties and numerous contacts at all levels of cooperation are fostered and dynamic relations with Austria maintained.

Issues with Austria which have not yet been entirely resolved, despite some progress being made, particularly relate to the situation of the Slovenian minority in Austria. Slovenia protects the interests of the minority and advocates strict implementation of all its rights under Article 7 of the Austrian State Treaty.

The Slovenian minority in Austrian Carinthia is one of six national minorities (Volksgruppen) in Austria. The oldest organisations that represent various associations, institutions and individuals is the National Council of Slovenes in Carinthia established in 1946 and the Union of Slovenian Organisations founded in 1955. In 2003 the Association of Carinthian Slovenes was founded. The Unity List is an independent political party of Carinthian Slovenes which is also open to members of the majority nation who support its programme.

A large number of Slovenian cultural associations and institutions are united by the main cultural organisations: Christian Cultural Union and Slovenian Educational Union.
