ProstoRož interventions are not merely artistic installations in public areas but also in-depth searches for new city planning options of space usage. In their projects, experts from various fields of spatial planning, architecture, landscape architecture, city planning, nature conservation, cultural heritage and tourism are involved.
Among the latest interventions there are the new coverings of fountains in the winter time and exhibitions in the abandoned windows of shops in the city centre, printed with poetry of contemporary Slovene poets.

Annual ProstoRož Project
The group's first exhibition project ProstoRož happened in 2004 with a transformation of neglected atriums into attractive public spaces. One year later the parks were rearranged in order to open new perspectives on the existing grounds. The ProstoRož collective focused on the Ljubljanica River in 2007, offering selected areas to public use, while playgrounds were the main theme in 2008 with furniture installed in order to provide children creative territories for play. In 2009 a selected street was inhabited in cooperation with the Mladi levi Festival.
