The T5 Project Space closed down in 2011.
Since its opening in Ljubljana's old Tobačna ("Tobacco Factory"), the T5 Project Space has hosted a colourful range of design events: lecture series and presentations, exhibitions on international designers as well as upcoming local talent, fashions shows, and occasional second-hand sales of design objects. T5 has also served as a venue for the Museum in the Street programme, and a substitute space for exhibitions as part of the Hosting Moderna galerija! programme during the renovation of the Museum of Modern Art. At the exhibition IRWIN, NSK Passport Holders in 2009, documentary videos were shown alongside with the debate and lectures on the effect NSK passports have had as supplementary documents for crossing a border. At this event visitors were invited to become members of NSK (Neue Slowenische Kunst) State.
The TraktaT, Architectural Jury workshop, organised by TrajekT, Institute for Spatial Culture with Andreas Ruby, Luka Skansi, and Maroje Mrduljaš giving lectures, took place at T5 Project Space in 2009.
The PechaKucha Night programme features 10-15 short lectures per night during which projects and ideas are presented with each presenter being permitted 20 slides, each shown for 20 seconds.
