Past Events

Založba Sanje (Dreams Publishing House) is a private publishing house established by Rok Zavrtanik in 1997. Its aim is to support and foster creativity and to go beyond the various limitations of both popular and elitist culture, crossing the boundaries of set values, aesthetics, genres, politics, or geography. Thus an African novel is published next to a collection of American short stories, a free music form is presented alongside a classical composition, an audio book is offered next to a printed book.

Sanje Publishing House organises the Sanje ('Dreams') Festival at Ljubljana Park Zvezda every Summer and also runs its own bookshop. In 2010 and 2011, the Sanje Festival ventured to Medana and Šmartno, renamed as Dreams in Medana (Sanje v Medani).

The section of international editions consists of print and audio books by Slovene and international authors, available in English, German, and Croatian.
