Creative Europe in Slovenia, 2018 update

Slovene Association of Historic Towns (logo) Refresh project.jpg

Since 1997 hundreds of cultural organisations from across Europe join in for a very special set of administrative and discursive protocols. New projects are painstakingly compiled and proposed each year as artists and producers aim for co-funding from one of the European Union's programm's for the cultural and creative sectors. Today these programmes are united under the name Creative Europe.

Slovene cultural producers have been consistently successful in these programmes. In fact, through an impressive performance of their application-genius, in 2018 the 5 project leaders have managed to claim no less than 2.8 million euros, while 17 Slovene producers are engaged as partners in granted Cooperation Projects of the Culture sub-programme.

Since 2012 the annual festivalscapes are provided as an infographic, conceived by the team at the Ljudmila Art and Science Laboratory.

The interactive calendars include the festivals from the database arranged by weeks and by field. You can get various charts, e.g. the Music festivals only, by clicking on the art field.

Festival organisers, you are invited to send in the missing festival dates for our 2018 festival infographic, or the dates of your editions in 2019 or 2020.

You can complement the infographic with the timeline of festivals, which reveals the dynamics of establishing new festivals in Slovenia (since 1909).

All the festivalis in 2018 with the dates are listed here.
