Event description

  1. TEXT - Description of the event: a vital information: a short description of the event (type of event (an exhibition, a concert, a lecture, etc.), a title in italics, by author [[]], (co)produced by Slovene producer [[]] (the title of the organisation should correspond to the Culture.si namespace)
  2. Be consistent with order of information
  3. Include title of a performance/exhibition/book/project in English if possible
  4. If possible, include the internal link to the article in the Culture.si database (eg Slovene producer, organiser)

Festival field & Organiser url

  1. FESTIVAL - check the name of festival in the Event Search field
  2. ORGANISER URL - the website of the festival

External link - Programme

The external url address brings additional information about the event. A good link is:

  • a special web page dedicated to Slovenian event, published online by the venue/organiser/festival
  • a programme schedule of the whole festival (including Slovenian participants) - ! often out of date after festival closure


Not so good is:

  • a link to FB event announcement
  • a link to the hosting group's website (only option in case of touring, when 1 event covers several cities, e.g. Laibach)


When a link in an archive is invalid, one should correct it

  • ideally find the web page in the festival archive
  • link to the event report
  • link to the organiser's website

Categories

  • One category or more (in case of multiple disciplines) - choose among: Architecture, Dance, Design, Film, Literature, Music, New media art, Theatre, Visual arts, Intangible heritage, Monuments&sites, Museums, Media, Archives, Libraries + Funding (if event is related to funding), Education (workshops, lectures), Support services (some embassy events)

Embassies Category

  • Write Embassies into Category field when you get information from the Embassy.
    • supported by the Embassy of the Repubic of Slovenia (City) - when financially supported via Cultural fund
    • announced by the Embassy of the Repubic of Slovenia (City) - in case when the VP only promotes the event

Top Category

  • Write top into Category field if you want the event to be featured on the Culture.si cover page - check that you various disciplines are covered (adapt the "top" events)

Events Search

  • An Events Searchbox is accessible on the Events worldwide web page:

Search_Events

  • A query through the Description text (hosting authors), the venue, the Country and City is possible
  • A list of Cities appears after clicking on the Country
  • Events can be filtered also via Festivals

Formatting rules

  • INTERNAL LINKS should be put into the | Text = field - use [[]] for Slovene artists, Slovene producers, organisers of the event, supporters (Embassies) - USE THE EXACT NAME FROM THE C.SI DATABASE
  • SLOVENE VENUE ABROAD - if the event happens at the Slovene venue abroad (eg SSG Trieste), there is no need to insert an internal link after |at = as the link is done automatically
    • Example: |at = Slovene Permanent Theatre in Trieste (! USE THE EXACT NAME FROM THE C.SI DATABASE)
  • DATES - example: | From = 30 May 2011 - | To = 15 June 2011 - In case of one day events, delete the line | To =
  • PROGRAMME: insert the external url address - OBLIGATORY FIELD!
  • FESTIVAL: insert a generic name of the festival - select among the already inserted festivals. Please check it out in the Search_Events
  • If the web address contains strange signs, maybe you should replace them with the url escape codes
  • CATEGORIES - add the additional categories if needed

Event status: missing data

Insert a note about an event into the GoogleDocs EVENTS (missing dates or links) in case of:

  • the missing dates of the event
  • the missing www link to the programme/event info (published by the venue, festival, producer or organiser)
    • Example: predstavitve slovenskih filmov v več mestih po Izraelu (julij)
